  • Chemists at the Max Planck Institute take the waste product from the creation of the drug artemisinin - artemisinic acid - and convert it into the drug itself.

  • Finally, they cloned the gene from the wormwood tree that produces the enzyme P450, which the plant uses to convert amorphadiene to artemisinic acid, and expressed it in the amorphadiene-producing yeast strain.

    THE MEDICAL NEWS

  • "Given the existence of known, relatively high-yielding chemistry for converting artemisinic acid to artemisinin or any other derivative that might be desired, microbial produced artemisinic acid is a viable source of this potent family of anti-malarial drugs," said Keasling when the yeast breakthrough was first announced.

    THE MEDICAL NEWS

  • In 2006, the collaboration reported the use of synthetic biology techniques to genetically engineer a strain of yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) that was capable of producing high levels of artemisinic acid, the immediate precursor to artemisinin.
