Biosynthesis of several mono- and sesqui-terpenes that possess E or Z double bonds, or which are generally considered to be derived from precursors possessing such geometries, involved loss of the pro-4S hydrogen of mevalonate in the construction of the double bond. These results confirm and extend previous observations. A recent claim to have newly discovered such a stereochemical correlation is rejected. © 1985.
