Stereochemistry of the reduction of 24-methyldesmosterol to campesterol and dihydrobrassicasterol in higher plants

Abstract

Feeding of chemically synthesized [26- 13 C]- and [27- 13 C]-labelled 24-methyldesmosterols to tissue cultures of Oryza satiba and Catharanthus roseus followed by 13 C NMR analysis of the biosynthesized sterols reveals that reduction of the 24(25)-double bond giving either campesterol or dihydrobrassicasterol takes place in an anti-manner.
