Abstract When subjected to ‘activating’ plasmolytic treatments, several Ascomycetes exhibit an enzymic activity which degrades 1,4-α- d -glucans to 1,5- d -anhydrofructose, then converts this sugar to ascopyrone P (in Pezizales) or ascopyrone T (in Tuberales). Biogenetical, mycological and practical implications of these bioconversions are discussed. 
A new chemical synthesis of Ascopyrone P from 1,5-anhydro-D-fructose.
The anhydrofructose pathway and its possible role in stress response and signaling.
