Biosynthetic experiments with Aspidosperma pyricollum plants employing radioactively labelled forms of 16, 17-dihydrosecodin-17-ol (2) and secodine (3) reveal that the latter is incorporated intact during the biosynthesis of apparicine (1). These results provide important information about the later stages of biosyntheses of this alkaloid.
