Abstract

Hygrine, an intermediate in biosynthesis of tropane alkaloids, was formed non-enzymatically by the coupling of γ-methylaminobutyraldehyde with either acetoacetic acid or acetonedicarboxylic acid. When these ketoacids were fed to a tropane alkaloid-free culture of tobacco roots, hygrine formation was observed. A possible process of this reaction is discussed. © 1988.
