Biosynthesis of acorane sesquiterpenes by Trichoderma

Author affiliations

Abstract

The volatiles of three Trichoderma strains have been collected by use of a closed-loop stripping apparatus (CLSA) and analysed by GC-MS. Several biosynthetically related sesquiterpenes have been identified in the complex headspace extracts. Additionally, the absolute configurations of some sesquiterpenes were determined by chiral GC-MS. The biosynthesis of the main compound tricho-acorenol was investigated by feeding of deuterated mevalonolactone isotopomers and contradicts a previously published pathway for Fusidium.
