  • [1.11
    - The latter established a genetic and biochemical basis in Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron for the bioactivation of broccoli-derived glucosinolates into chemopreventative isothiocyanates
  • [1.9
    - Inositol, a carbocyclic sugar abundant in eukaryotes, forms the basis for diverse phosphorylated secondary messenger inositol phosphates and inositol lipids.
    - Inositol lipids are ubiquitous in eukaryotes and have finely tuned roles in cellular signalling and membrane homoeostasis.
    - In Bacteria, however, inositol lipid production is relatively rare.
    - Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron (BT) was reported to produce inositol lipids and sphingolipids (and Bacteroides ovatus).
