Structural and mechanistic analyses have revealed how two bacterial enzymes biosynthesize the terpenoid odorant 2-methylisoborneol (MIB) (Biochemistry, DOI: 10.1021/bi300109c and 10.1021/bi201827a). The work could lead to an improved understanding of factors promoting MIB production and ways to mitigate . . .
