Biosynthesis of isoprenic unit of secoiridoids. The MEP pathway for isoprenoid biosynthesis is reported. Through DXP synthesis and reduction, MEP is obtained and converted to CDPME through the transfer of a phosphocytidyl moiety. CDPME is phosphorylated to CDPMEP and cyclised to MECP. After an oxidoreduction reaction CDPMES is reduced to HMBPP, which is finally converted to IPP or DMAPP.
