The stereochemical course of tricho-acorenol biosynthesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

The biosynthesis of tricho-acorenol in Trichoderma harzianum was investigated by feeding stereospecifically deuterated mevalonolactone isotopomers, followed by a detailed GC/MS analysis of the incorporation of labelling. The results establish a highly stereospecific hydride migration and antarafacial attack of water in the terminal step towards tricho-acorenol.
