(Equation presented) The biosynthesis of the meroterpenoid neomarinone from a marine actinomycete was probed through feeding experiments with 13C-labeled precursors. NMR characterization of [U-13C 6]glucose-enriched neomarinone led to the structural revision of structure 4a to 4b, which was confirmed by extensive 2D NMR spectrometry with unlabeled compound.
