Abstract

Tissue cultures of Pimpinella anisum and P. major were used to study the biosynthesis of pseudoisoeugenols. The putative precursors were labelled with 13C with one exception that was labelled with 14C. The incorporation of the label was controlled by 13CNMR and liquid scintil­ lation, respectively. The biosynthetic sequence found was L-phenylalanine, p-cinnamic acid, p-coumaric acid, p-hydroxycoum aric alcohol, p-methoxycoumaric alcohol and anethol. The incorporation rates ranged from 0.5% to 25%.

Keywords: Pseudoisoeugenols; Phenylpropanoids; Biosynthesis; 13C -Labelling Pimpinella Species
