 Title    Randomization of the Flavonoid A Ring during Biosynthesis of Kaempferol from |l,2 -,3C2j Acetate in Cell Suspension Cultures of Parsley  
 Abstract    Cell suspension cultures o f parsley (Petroselinum hortense) were incubated with [l,2-13C2]ace-tate during a period o f active flavonoid production. The flavonoid glycosides were extracted with ethanol, hydrolyzed in dilute acid, and the aglycones purified by chromatography. Apigenin, a flavone, and kaempferol, a flavonol, were analyzed at 67.9 MHz by 13C FT NMR. The 13C enrich­ ment confirmed that acetate contributes primarily to the flavonoid A ring. The coupling patterns between adjacent 13C atoms o f the A ring indicate that the cyclization direction of the A ring is random in both compounds. While randomization o f apigenin could have occurred chemically through opening of the pyrone ring under the acid conditions used for glycoside hydrolysis, ran­ domization o f the more stable flavonol must have occurred biosynthetically. The latter result supports the conclusion that a chalcone is an intermediate in flavonoid biosynthesis.
