Molluscs vs. bacteria: a new finding on marine natural products biosynthesis

Image
The gastropod mollusc Scaphander lignarius —a marine invertebrate found in North Atlantic and Mediterranean water— is the first organism, besides bacteria, in which the biosynthesis of lignarenones, organic molecules involved in organism’s chemical defence, has been identified. This is one of the main conclusions of an article published on the cover of the prestigious journal ChemBioChem. Experts Conxita Àvila and Anna Domènech-Coll, from the Department of Animal Biology at the Faculty of Biology of the UB, affiliated centre with the campus of international excellence BKC, collaborated in the article, which is also signed by Guido Cimino, Angelo Fontana and Adele Cutignano (Institute of Biomolecular Chemistry, Naples), and other international experts.
