13C NMR spectroscopy using INADEQUATE pulse sequence method has been used to deduce the labelling patterns of the three metabolites of Penicillium citreo-viride B. derived from [1,2-13C]acetate, indicating that their carbon skeletons consist of two different units [CH3COCH2COCH2COS-Enzyme and CH3COCH2COS-Enzyme].
