Stereochemistry of hydrogen removal from the 'unactivated' C-3 position of 4-hydroxybutyryl-CoA catalysed by 4-hydroxybutyryl-CoA dehydratase

Lookup NU author(s): Emeritus Professor Bernard Golding



(R)- and (S)-γ-[3-2H1]butyrolactones have been synthesised from (R)- and (S)-glycidol, respectively, and used to demonstrate that it is the pro-(S) hydrogen atom that is stereospecifically abstracted from C-3 of 4-hydroxybutyryl-CoA by 4-hydroxybutyryl-CoA dehydratase, and that this atom is not returned to C-4.
