De novo biosynthesis of fatty acids from α-D-glucose in parasitoid wasps of the Nasonia group

Prager, Lorena ; Bruckmann, Astrid ; Ruther, Joachim


Fatty acids are indispensable primary metabolites for virtually any organism on earth and thus enzymatic machinery enabling de novo production of fatty acids from carbohydrates is highly conserved. A series of studies has questioned the ubiquity of lipogenesis in parasitoid wasps suggesting that the vast majority of species have lost the ability to synthesize fatty acids de novo. One such species ...
