Isopentenyl diphosphate and dimethylallyl diphosphate serve as the universal precursors for the biosynthesis of terpenes. Although their biosynthesis by means of mevalonate has been studied in detail, a second biosynthetic pathway for their formation by means of 1-deoxy-D-xylulose 5-phosphate has been discovered only recently in plants and certain eubacteria. Earlier in vivo experiments with ...
