Botcinins and botrylactones, polyketide toxins excreted by Botrytis cinerea, share a common biosynthetic origin as shown by isotopic labelling experiments and mutants that lack genes encoding key enzymes for botcinic acid or botrydial production. The results shed light on the origin of the starter unit, thereby solving a long-standing mystery in the biosynthesis of botcinins.
