Hide Abstract
The biosynthetic origin of isopentenyl diphosphate in the polyisoprenoid biosynthesis of the rubber-producing plant Eucommia ulmoides Oliver was elucidated for the first time by feeding experiments using 13C-labeled isotopomers of (RS)-mevalonate, 1-deoxy-D-xylulose-3,4,5-triacetate, 2C-methyl-D-erythritol-1,2,3,4-tetraacetate, and pyruvate. After 13C-labeled isotopomers were fed to the young seedlings, the polyisoprenoid fractions were prepared and analyzed by 13C NMR. The NMR data showed that the isoprene units of polyisoprenoid derived from isopentenyl diphosphate, which was biosynthesized using both mevalonate and 1-deoxy-D-xylulose-5-phosphate in E. ulmoides. It is assumed that the cross-talk of isopentenyl diphosphate, derived from both pathways, occurs during the biosynthesis of polyisoprenoid; therefore, it was observed in the formation of low-molecular weight isoprenoids.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
