Abstract

Here, we describe the synthesis of the genetically predicted biosynthetic intermediates of the neurotoxin saxitoxin (STX) (1), 2, 6 and 7, and identification of 2 and 6 in toxin-producing microorganisms. This is the first chemical evidence supporting the genetically predicted biosynthetic route toward 1.
