Abstract

The chronology of the discoveries along the pathway of vitamin B(12) biosynthesis is reviewed from a personal perspective, including discussion of the most recent finding that two pathways to B(12) exist-one aerobic and one anaerobic-which differ mainly in the ring contraction mechanisms that convert porphyrin to corrin.
