Abstract

[2H6]3-Dehydroteasterone, [2H6]teasterone and [2H6]typhasterol were fed to cultured cells of Catharanthus roseus. As metabolites of [2H6]3-dehydroteasterone, [2H6]typhasterol (major) and [2H6]teasterone (minor) were identified by full-scan GC-MS. This result, together with the result of feeding teasterone and typhasterol, provides evidence for the possible involvement of 3-dehydroteasterone in the conversion of teasterone to typhasterol.
