BREVETOXIN CHEMISTRY, With aspectroscopy sectionBYDR ANTHONY MELVIN CRASTOA SHORT PRESENTATION FORACADEMICSMAR 2012
Dedicated to my son LionelCrasto,He was only in first standard in school (dec2007)when I was Paralysed head to toe.His smiling face sees me through day in and day out.Vast readership from academia and industry motivates me, and keeps megoing.I am helping millions with free advertisement free websites and has millionhits on googleThanks for helping me to keep lionel smiling

This is a vast topic and a shortoverview is givenandin no way complete justice can bedone for this
Brevetoxin (PbTx), or brevetoxins, are a suite of cyclic polyether compoundsproduced naturally by a species of dinoflagellate known asKarenia brevis.Brevetoxins are neurotoxins that bind to voltage-gated sodium channels in nervecells, leading to disruption of normal neurological processes and causing theillness clinically described as neurotoxic shellfish poisoning (NSP).Although brevetoxins are most well-studied in K. brevis, they are also found inother species of Karenia and at least one large fish kill has been traced tobrevetoxins in Chattonella.
• Biosynthesis• A proposed biosynthetic route includes a novel polyketide formation involving Claisen condensation of a dicarboxylic acid with the alpha-position of the second carboxylic function with a loss of a carboxyl group.

1 I Vilotijevic and T F Jamison, Science, 2007 (DOI: 10.1126/science.1146421)Brevetoxin B, gymnocin B and related toxic marine natural products are some ofthe most complex structures ever isolated from nature. But their structure ofrepeating oxygen-containing rings suggests a fairly simple biosynthesis, involvingzipping up a long chain molecule. Koji Nakanishi, who isolated brevetoxin B in1981, proposed in 1985 that a cascade of epoxide-opening reactions could explainhow these seemingly complex structures are made2.But until now, attempts to recreate this cascade in the lab have predominantlyyielded the wrong product - producing five-membered rings, rather than the six-membered rings of the natural product. However, Tim Jamison and IvanVilotijevic at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, US, have now found thatthe solvent used in the reaction is crucial. When the reaction is done in water - asit is in nature - rather than in organic solvents, it is almost exclusively the six-membered product that is formed.
Gymnocin B and related ladder polyether toxins could be biosynthesised via an epoxide-opening cascade
