Biosynthesis of vitamin B12: incorporation of (11S)-[11-2H1-] and (11R)-[11-2H1]porphobilinogen into sirohydrochlorin and 2,7,20-trimethylisobacteriochlorin

Abstract

(11S)-[11-2H1]Porphobilinogen (1a) and the (11R)-isomer (1b) are incorporated biosynthetically into precorrin-2 and precorrin-3 which are isolated as the aromatised esters (7) and (9) for 1H NMR studies; the unexpected results are discussed.
