Literature References: A member of the B complex vitamins; essential vitamin for the biosynthesis of coenzyme A in mammalian cells. Occurs ubiquitously in all animal and plant tissue. The richest common source is liver, but jelly of the queen bee contains 6 times as much as liver. Rice bran and molasses are other good sources. Isoln from liver: R. J. Williams et al., J. Am. Chem. Soc. 60, 2719 (1938). Synthesis: E. T. Stiller et al., ibid. 62, 1785 (1940); Reichstein, Grüssner, Helv. Chim. Acta 23, 650 (1940); Grüssner et al., ibid. 1276. Absolute configuration: Hill, Chan, Biochem. Biophys. Res. Commun. 38, 181 (1970). Only the natural, dextrorotatory form has vitamin activity. Review of chemistry, biochemistry and pharmacology: W. Friedrich, Vitamins (de Gruyter, Berlin, 1988) pp 809-835; of metabolism: A. G. Tahiliani, C. J. Beinlich, Vitam. Horm. 46, 165-228 (1991).
