Abstract:

Biosynthetic pathways leading to the furanocoumarins, in contrast with those to simple coumarins, are not well understood. To date, no intermediate in a proposed reaction sequence has been identified. The report presents observations strongly indicating participation of two alpha-hydroxyisopropyldihydrofuranocoumarins, marmesin, and columbianetin as natural intermediates in the elaboration of linear and angular furanocoumarins, respectively.
