Figure S3 - Production of fungal volatiles through pathways of branched chain amino acid catabolism. 2-ketoacids, the main intermediates, are formed through enzymatic transamination of branched chain amino acids; they can also be synthesized de novo. 2-keto acid decarboxylase leads to formation of the corresponding alcohols. 2-ketoacid dehydrogenase leads to formation of the corresponding CoA derivatives and, subsequently to methyl and ethyl esters.
