2,4-DIHYDROXY-6-METHYLBENZOIC ACID Usage And Synthesis
  • DefinitionChEBI: A dihydroxybenzoic acid that is 2,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid in which the hydrogen at position 6 is replaced by a methyl group.
  • BiosynthesisOne of the simplest polyketide derivatives, orsellinic acid is widely distributed in fungi. It is biosynthesised from an acetate starter unit and three malonyl units, as shown in Figure. Intramolecular condensation of the polyketide chain gives orsellinic acid without further modification.
