Incorporation of carbon atoms 1 and 6 of glucose into protocatechuic acid by Neurospora.


The mechanism of biosynthesis of the simpler aromatic compounds has been significantly clarified recently by the use of mutant strains of Neurospora (1) and Escherichia coli (2) and by the use of isotopic carbon (3-6). The evidence indicates that aromatization takes place via dehydroquinic acid, dehydroshikimic acid, and shikimic acid. Although the ultimate… (More)
