In vitro biosynthesis of the C-glycosidic bond in aloin

Grün, M. ; Franz, Gerhard



Abstract

Biosynthetic studies with cell-free extracts from Aloe arborescens Mill. demonstrate the transfer of the glucose moiety from UDP-glucose to aloe emodin anthrone, forming the C-glycosidic linkage in the anthracene derivative aloin. The pH-dependence and the specificity of UDP-glucose and aloe emodin anthrone for the biosynthesis of the C-glycosidic bond in aloin are shown.
