Biosynthesis of digitoxose and glucose in the purpurea glycosides of Digitalis purpurea

Franz, Gerhard ; Hassid, W. Z.


A study of the biosynthesis of digitoxose and D-glucose in the purpurea glycosides A and B of Digitalis purpurea leaves by feeding 14C-labeled D-glucose, D-fructose, D-mannose and D-galactose demonstrated that D-glucose was the most effective precursor of digitoxose in these glycosides. Degradation of the labeled digitoxose and D-glucose indicated that D-glucose was directly transformed to this ...
