Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The mechanism by which prostaglandin synthase converts arachidonic acid to prostaglandin G(2), creating five new chiral centers in the process, is still incompletely understood. The first radical intermediate has been characterized by EPR spectroscopy but subsequent proposed intermediates have not succumbed to detection. We report the synthesis of 7-thiaarachidonic acid designed to stabilize one of the proposed radical intermediates, which may allow its detection.
