Pyruvic acid and D-glucose as precursors in mitomycin biosynthesis by Streptomyces verticillatus

Abstract

Feeding experiments and degradations have shown that [1-14C]pyruvic acid and D-[3,4-14C]glucose specifically label C-6a of mitomycin C, and that [2-14C]pyruvic acid and D-[2-14C]glucose specifically label C-6 of this antibiotic.
