  • New biosynthetic step in the melanin pathway of wangiella (exophiala) dermatitidis: evidence for 2-acetyl-1,3,6,8-tetrahydroxynaphthalene as a novel precursor

    The predominant cell wall melanin of Wangiella dermatitidis, a black fungal pathogen of humans, is synthesized from 1,8-dihydroxynaphthalene (D2HN). An early precursor, 1,3,6,8-tetrahydroxynaphthalene (T4HN), in the pathway leading to D2HN is reportedly produced directly as a pentaketide by an iterative type I polyketide synthase (PKS). In contrast, the bluish-green pigment in Aspergillus ...
