In the present review the biosynthetic pathways of sweroside, morroniside and oleuropein type secoiridoid glucosides through mevalonic acid (MVA), geraniol, deoxyloganin, loganin etc. are outlined. The biosynthesis of alkaloidal glucosides, which can be regarded as kinds of secoiridoids, is also briefly described.
