The successful incorporation of non-activated [2,3-2H2]-L-rhodinose 4b into landomycin A 7 proves the existence of a short activation pathway for L-rhodinose 4; this result provides evidence of a general saving pathway for deoxysugar building blocks and their biosynthetic intermediates, respectively, which become accidentally deactivated during the biosynthetic deoxygenation cascades.
