The role and metabolism of indole-3-acetic acid in gram-negative bacteria is well documented, but little is known about indole-3-acetic acid biosynthesis and regulation in gram-positive bacteria. The phytopathogen Rhodococcus fascians, a gram-positive organism, incites diverse developmental alterations, such as leafy...

The tetrahydro-pyrano[3,4-b]indoles 6 were synthesized from 2-(2-trimethylsilanyl-1H-indol-3-yl)-ethanols 5 and various ketones or aldehydes through silicon-directed oxa-Pictet-Spengler cyclizations. An unusual reaction led to the dimeric products 7 when some of 5 was treated with acetone using BF(3) as the catalyst.

The disappearance of riboflavin absorbance at 445 nm from beers or model beers on light exposure is directly linked to light-struck character formation. The addition of (+)-catechin, (-)-epicatechin, tryptophol, or ascorbic acid was able to reduce, but not stop, absorbance...
