The biosynthetic origins of the isocyanide and isothiocyanate functional groups in the marine sponge metabolites diisocyanoadociane (1), 9-isocyanopupukeanane (10) and 9-isothiocyanatopupukeanane (11) are probed by the use of [(14)C]-labelled precursor experiments. Incubation of the sponge Amphimedon terpenensis with [(14)C]-labelled thiocyanate resulted in radioactive diisocyanoadociane (1) in which the radiolabel is specifically associated with the isocyanide carbons. As expected, cyanide and… Expand
