Chorismate is a biosynthetic precursor of the aromatic amino acids and many natural products. [2,6,9-C-13]Chorismate and [1,3,5,8-C-13]chorismate have been prepared microbially from [1-C-13]glucose and [2-C-13]glucose, respectively, using the culture filtrates of Klebsiella pneumonia strain 62-1. This is an inexpensive, time saving and easy method in comparison to other published methods for the preparation of selectively C- 13-labelled chorismate.
