Specific enzymic formation of the I)g isomer" of I-amino-2-propanol, a part of the vitamin B12 molecule, has not yet been reported. KRASNA, ROSENBLUM AND SPRINSON z, using growing cultures of Streptomyces griseus, found that L-E15NJthreonine is effectively incorporated into the aminopropanol moiety of vitamin B12 and suggested that the amino alcohol might be formed by decarboxylase activity. A decarboxylase that converts L-threonine to Og-I-amino-2-propanol is not known. On the other hand, the… Expand
