Synthesis and bioactivity of the gibberellin, 18 hydroxy-GA 1 (GA 132 )

Morrison (previously Beck), Ellen; Chandler, Peter; Thomson, Regan; Mander, Lewis


As part of a study to confirm putative structural assignments to new gibberellins and to furnish sufficient quantities for biological investigations, a twenty step synthesis of 18-hydroxy GA1 from gibberellic acid (GA3) is described, allowing the confirmation of structure for a new gibberellin, GA132, that occurs in developing grains of barley (Hordeum vulgare). The early part of the sequence involved cleavage of the C(3)-C(4) bond in the A-ring of a 3-oxo intermediate. The ring was then...[Show more]
