Metabolite Standards for Mevalonate and Isoprenoid Pathway Analysis


Mevalonate-Isoprenoid Pathway

Alternatives to the classical glycolysis and fermentation pathways are also being studied as sources of common biofuels as well as potential sources of new biofuels such as isoprenoids. The mevalonate-isoprenoid pathway may prove to be a rich source of a variety of hydrocarbon-based biofuels.

Sigma-Aldrich's comprehensive and unique range of metabolites enables new approaches towards molecular understanding of the relevant mevalonate pathway (center) and the DXP pathway (left) towards the isoprenoid compounds (bottom), the fatty-acid or fatty acyl-CoA pathways (top and right) towards the different alcohols, esters and alkanes.
