An unprecedented series of C16 oxylipins (1-8) has been characterized from the marine diatom Thalassiosira rotula. Absolute stereochemistry of the major alcohols 1 and 3 was determined to be 9S by spectroscopic and chemical methods. All the described products are formally derived by unprecedented enzymatic oxidation of C16 fatty acids. Conversion of hexadeca-6,9,12-trienoic acid (C16:3 omega-4) into 3 unequivocally established the occurrence of (at least) a specific 9S-oxygenase activity. To… CONTINUE READING
