Abstract/OtherAbstract:
1. Riboflavine biosynthesis occurs in non-proliferating cultures of a purine-requiring strain of Escherichia coli (ATCC no. 13863). 2. No significant incorporation of radioactivity from [1-(14)C]glycine into either C-4a and C-9a of riboflavine or into nucleic acid purines is detected under the above conditions; appreciable incorporation of label into 5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide occurs. However, the label of [6-(14)C]guanine is incorporated significantly into C-4 of riboflavine and into nucleic acid adenine and guanine; the specific radioactivity of the riboflavine is approximately twice that of either adenine or guanine of nucleic acid. 3. These results show that a purine derivative is an obligatory intermediate in riboflavine biogenesis.
