Abstract
This paper reports a new synthesis of bromoacetol phosphate and dihydr oxyacetone phosphate for use in fructose-1,6-bisphosphate aldolase (FB -aldolase) catalyzed syntheses. Then the activities of FB-aldolase and transketolase towards polyhydroxybutanal analogues of erythrose and e rythrose-4-phosphate were studied. These activities were high enough t o allow the syntheses of rare heptulose-1 -phosphates of the D and L s eries. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
