What we do and do not know about the cellular functions of polyisoprenoids

Surmacz, Liliana and Swiezewska, Ewa (2013) What we do and do not know about the cellular functions of polyisoprenoids. In: Isoprenoid Synthesis in Plants and Microorganisms New Concepts and Experimental Approaches. Springer Science+Business Media, New York, pp. 307-313. ISBN 978-1-4614-4062-8



Natural compounds classi fi ed as products of secondary metabolism are widely studied as to their potential biological role. Identi fi cation of possible cellular functions of polyisoprenoids, generally considered as secondary products, has been our focus for some 30 years already. The results of these studies for instance in the context of membrane permeability and protein modification are briefly described and discussed in this chapter.
