Abstract

In order to confirm the biosynthetic pathway to 1-octen-3-ol from linoleic acid, a crude enzyme solution was prepared from the edible mushroom, Lentinus decadetes. When the reaction was performed in the presence of glutathione peroxidase, which can reduce organic hydroperoxide to the corresponding hydroxide, the amount of 1-octen-3-ol formed from linoleic acid was decreased. At the same time, an accumulation of linoleic acid 10-hydroxide could be detected. The 10-hydroperoxide therefore seems to be an intermediate on the biosynthetic pathway.
