nph12193-sup-0002-FigS8.tifimage/tif6084KFig. S8 The proposed sterol biosynthesis pathway in Fusarium graminearum. The sterol pathway based on compounds detected in the wild-type PH-1 and FgCYP51 gene deletion mutants incubated in PDB media for 48 h. The proposed pathway in wild-type PH-1 is shown in solid arrows. The pathway after FgCYP51B deletion is shown with dashed arrows in the dashed box. The two additional sterols, 4,4,14-trimethyl ergosta-trienol and 4,4,14-trimethyl ergosta-dienol, in the dashed box were identified as TMS esters with m/z 510 and m/z 512.
