Other filamentous fungi, such as Aspergillus and Penicillium strains, produce sesquiterpenoid toxins, including the PR-toxin, sporogen-AO1, and phomenone, which are derived from the aristolochene scaffold [128] (Fig. 3). The corresponding 1,10-cyclizing sesquiterpene synthases were cloned more than a decade ago [101, 129], but only recently have studies begun to elucidate the biosynthesis of these toxins [130, 131]. A gene cluster encoding the PR-toxin biosynthetic pathway has been identified in the blue cheese mold P.

Although the characterized fungal bifunctional diterpene synthases share little sequence homology with plant enzymes except for some conserved motifs (Fig. 7), structural modeling of the fungal proteins in Phyre2 [185] reveals that they have the same three-domain structure as abietadiene and taxadiene synthase. 2 Fusicoccanes and Other Diterpenoids Made by Monofunctional Enzymes Fusicoccanes are potent phytotoxins known to be synthesized by a few fungal species [186]. Phomopsis amygdali causes wilting disease in trees and produces the diterpenoid fusicoccin A that binds and permanently activates plasma membrane H+-ATPase [186], which causes severe physiological effects in plants.

7 Cyclization of GGPS (FGPP) by characterized fungal diterpene synthases (Di-TPS). a Monofunctional class I Di-TPS fused to GGPP synthase catalyzes a one-step ionization dependent cyclization of GGPP or FGPP to generate tricyclic (5-8-5 ring system) or tetracyclic (5-6-5-5) hydrocarbon scaffolds. b Bifunctional Di-TPS catalyzes a two-step cyclization that is performed by two separate enzyme functions involving a bicyclic diphosphate intermediate that leads to the labdane-related diterpenoids. The N-terminal class II domain catalyzes a protonation dependent cyclization that yields a bicyclic 6-6 copalyl- or 5-6 diphosphate.
