Acetogenins

Acetogenins are compounds isolated from edible fruits that display selective toxicity against certain cancer cells. The PhD student on this brided project will develop a new synthesis route of these compounds using selective biocatalysts. Moreover, the effects of these compounds on cellular respiration (ATP depletion vs. ROS production) will be investigated, to shed more light on their mode of action.
