232 Aliphatic coded a-amino acids have featured in several studies, l-isoleucine being produced from E. 237 Bacterial hydantoinases and carbamoylases are establishing a prominent role in large scale amino acid production;238 immobilized Pseudomonas putida has been applied for production of d-5-(p-hydroxyphenyl)hydantoin,239 and recombinant E. 240 The more exotic natural amino acids continue to attract novel synthesis methodology, applied to the b-amino acid ADDA (Scheme 15; see also ref. e. en route to aplysillamide B (see also ref.

250 All these amino acids have been synthesis targets in recent years, as have (7)-detoxinine [newly synthesized from l-ascorbic acid via (43)251], and (+)-furanomycin [prepared from l-xylose, with radical cyclization of (44) as a key step252]. Recognition of the importance of polyfunctional protein crosslinks (+)pyridinoline and its deoxy homologue has stimulated further exploration of routes for their synthesis (see Volume 30, p. 257 A synthesis of the pyridinium crosslink, pentosidine, from tert-butyl (2S)-2-(Bocamino)-6-iodohexanoate and an Nd-(imidazopyridyl)ornithine, has been described (see ref.

213). 2 Synthesis of Protein Amino Acids and other Well-known Naturally Occurring Amino Acids. Thus, this Section is restricted to (a) biotechnological production of coded a-amino acids, and (b) synthesis of unusual a-amino acids. Reviews have appeared covering fermentative production of coded a-amino acids,224 l-alanine,225 l-lysine,226 l-threonine,227 and d-amino acids,228 enzymic production of l-threonine and l-allothreonine from 3-substituted 2-oxobutanoic acids using leucine dehydrogenase,229 d-phenylalanine and dtyrosine, also from corresponding a-keto acids but by a more roundabout route (glutamate racemase, d-amino acid transferase, glutamate dehydro- 1: Amino Acids 19 genase, formate dehydrogenase),230 and l-2-aminobutanoic acid (transamination from threonine or aspartic acid to 2-oxobutanoic acid by recombinant E.
