Roquefortine, an intermediate in the biosynthesis of oxaline in cultures of Penicillium oxalicum

Abstract

The incorporation of (2RS)-[indole-2-13C, 2-15N]tryptophan into both roquefortine and oxaline, and the efficient conversion of roquefortine into oxaline, defines a biosynthetic pathway by which N-14 of oxaline is from N-5 of roquefortine (and thus from tryptophan) and not from an exogenous nitrogen source.
