Chemical Society Seminar: Tadhg Begley - Thiamin Biosynthesis and catabolism


Maass Chemistry Building Room 10, 801 rue Sherbrooke Ouest, Montreal, QC, H3A 0B8, CA

Thiamin is an essential cofactor in all forms of life. While structurally simple, its biosynthesis is remarkably
complex and presents a treasure trove of new biological chemistry. In my lecture, I will describe the different
routes to the thiamin pyrimidine and thiazole and our initial results on thiamin catabolism and salvage.
