 Title    Biosynthesis of Daphnetin in Daphne mezereum L.  
 Abstract    Shoots of Daphne mezereum synthesized daphnetin (7,8-dihydroxycoumarin) more efficiently from [2-l4C]umbelliferone (7-hydroxycoumarin) than from [2-l4C]p-coumaric acid, and [2-14C]caf-feic acid was more poorly utilized still. These findings do not support the idea of derivation of daphnetin via hydroxylation of the caffeic acid ring at the 2 position, followed by lactone ring formation; instead they are consistent with the concept of daphnetin formation by an additional hydroxylation of umbelliferone at C-8. Umbelliferone was recovered with little l4C dilution from emulsin-hydrolysed extracts of shoots fed labelled umbelliferone, and TLC of extracts from un­ treated shoots revealed two substances yielding umbelliferone on hydrolysis. Evidence is pre­ sented from TLC and HPLC analysis that one of these is skimmin (7-O-ß-D-glucosylumbel-liferone), not previously reported from Daphne. The tracer experiments further support the theory that umbelliferone is the general precursor of coumarins bearing two or more hydroxyl functions on the aromatic ring.
