  • Both pulcherrimin and isobutanol (see flowchart) are derived from a common pathway. Some yeasts (left) are particularly adept at making pulcherrimin. The metabolic control of pulcherrimin biosynthesis may lend insight into how to boost isobutanol production in non-producing model yeast strains.
