29 Scheme 10 Biosynthesis of 7-chlorotryptophan. The glycopeptide antibiotics such as vancomycin and chloroeremomycin are complex nonribosomal peptides. One of the nonprotein amino acids found in these antibiotics is 4-hydroxyphenylglycine. The biosynthetic pathway of this nonprotein amino acid has been studied and prephenate was identified as the precursor. 96 It is interesting to note that L-tyrosine is utilized during the transamination step to yield 4-OHphenylglycine, but also 4-OH-phenylpyruvic acid that feeds back into the pathway and can be utilized in subsequent cycles.
