Natural products (NPs) have been part of drug discovery process, including cancer therapy. However, a constant hurdle in cancer area is drug resistance. Alternatively, treatment strategies can be combined to control or inhibit the proliferation. In executing such strategies, Science observes the return of NPs discoveries, after decades of focus on synthetic chemistry. The advances regar...
Natural products, when used as herbicide, destroy the vegetal tissues by contact action, featuring quickly action and some cases, require less half an hour for the target plant becomes vulnerable to these compounds. The use of natural products as prototypes for finding of herbicides is an area which is being operated slowly, perhaps by small number of researchers in the area, fault jobs...
This research initiative is based on the use of new methodologies for designing chloroplasts from plants in different biological systems aiming the biosynthesis of active natural products. The main strategy will be accomplished through the redirection of biosynthetic pathways (towards the chloroplast) of some important classes of natural products, and also by the optimization of the ele...
