abstract

  • The biosynthetic origin of the C(3) unit, C-6,5,5', of pyridoxamine was investigated in two yeasts, Candida utilis ATCC 9256 and Saccharomyces cerevisiae ATCC 7752. The incorporation patterns within pyridoxamine bishydrochloride derived from variously multiply (13)C- and (2)H-labeled samples of glycerol and glyceraldehyde, established by NMR spectroscopy, indicate that the three-carbon unit C-6,5,5' of pyridoxamine is derived intact from a triose.
