Samenvatting

Stereospecifically labelled precursors were subjected to conversion by seven bacterial sesquiterpene cyclases to investigate the stereochemistry of their initial 1,10-cyclisation-1,3-hydride shift cascades. Enzymes with products of known absolute configuration showed a coherent stereochemical course, except for (−)-α-amorphene synthase, for which the obtained results are better explained by an initial 1,6-cyclisation. The link between the absolute configuration of the product and the stereochemical course of the 1,3-hydride shifts enabled assignment of the absolute configurations of three enzyme products, which were confirmed independently through the absolute configuration of the common byproduct germacrene D-4-ol.
