Abstract

Treatment of suspended callus cultures of Nicotiana tabacum with commercial cellulase elicited four principal stress metabolites including the phytoalexin capsidiol and a second eremophilane-type diol, shown on the basis of chemical and spectroscopic evidence to be 4-epieremophil-9-ene-11ξ,12-diol (without assignment of absolute configuration). This diol appears to be structurally identical with debneyol isolated from N. debneyi (see accompanying paper). Among minor metabolites were an isomer and a dehydro-analogue of the diol. GC/MS of cyclic derivatives (boronates and di-t-butylsilylene derivatives) of vicinal diols was useful for their detection and characterisation. The remaining two major metabolites appeared to be phytuberol and phytuberin.
