The Chemical Reactions and Pathways Resulting in the Formation of an Antibiotic a Substance Produced by or Derived From Certain Fungi Bacteria and Other Organisms That Can Destroy or Inhibit the Growth of Other Microorganisms.
The Chemical Reactions and Pathways Resulting in Many of the Chemical Changes of Compounds That Are Not Necessarily Required For Growth and Maintenance of Cells and Are Often Unique to a Taxon. in Multicellular Organisms Secondary Metabolism Is Generally Carried Out in Specific Cell Types and May Be Useful For the Organism As a Whole. in Unicellular Organisms Secondary Metabolism Is Often Used For the Production of Antibiotics or For the Utilization and Acquisition of Unusual Nutrients.
The Part of a Cell or Its Extracellular Environment in Which a Gene Product Is Located. a Gene Product May Be Located in One or More Parts of a Cell and Its Location May Be As Specific As a Particular Macromolecular Complex That Is a Stable Persistent Association of Macromolecules That Function Together.
Catalysis of an Oxidation Reduction (redox) Reaction a Reversible Chemical Reaction in Which the Oxidation State of an Atom or Atoms Within a Molecule Is Altered. One Substrate Acts As a Hydrogen or Electron Donor and Becomes Oxidized While the Other Acts As Hydrogen or Electron Acceptor and Becomes Reduced.
Oxidoreductase Activity Acting On Paired Donors with Incorporation or Reduction of Molecular Oxygen 2 Oxoglutarate As One Donor and Incorporation of One Atom Each of Oxygen Into Both Donors
Catalysis of the Reaction: a + 2 Oxoglutarate + O2 = B + Succinate + Co2. This Is an Oxidation Reduction (redox) Reaction in Which Hydrogen or Electrons Are Transferred From 2 Oxoglutarate and One Other Donor and One Atom of Oxygen Is Incorporated Into Each Donor.
Interacting Selectively and Non Covalently with L Ascorbic Acid (2r) 2 [(1s) 1 2 Dihydroxyethyl] 4 Hydroxy 5 Oxo 2 5 Dihydrofuran 3 Olate; L Ascorbic Acid Is Vitamin C and Has Co Factor and Anti Oxidant Activities in Many Species.
