Conversion of averufin derived from [1,2-13C]acetate into aflatoxin B1
The incorporation of label from averufin derived from [1,2-13C]- and [1-14C]-acetate supports the intermediacy of averufin in the biosynthesis of aflatoxin B1.
A versiconal hemiacetal acetate converting enzyme in aflatoxin biosynthesis
The major product of the enzymatic reaction is a water soluble compound not chloroform-extractable at pH 7.5, which is tentatively identified as ‘versiconal hemiacetal alcohol,’ which is converted to versicolorin C (VC) upon acid treatment. Expand
