Acid-catalysed rearrangement of the sandfly pheromone sobralene to verticillenes, consolidating its relationship inter alia to the taxanes and phomactins

Abstract© 2019 Thieme. All rights reserved. The sex-aggregation pheromone sobralene produced by the sandfly Lutzomyia longipalpis is isomerised to verticillenes in the presence of mild acid, thereby providing credence to the proposal that sobralene is a likely shunt metabolite of the taxadiene synthase cascade.
