The bold italics letter and number combinations are the genes that encode the enzymes involved in the pathway (ex TT4 ) . The colored compounds are the ones that are written in standard, bold, non-italic font (ex Tannins). Also, note that there are branches in the pathways. There are actually seven different pathways that lead to end colored products. In the case of Tannins, there are two different pathways that lead to them. Be sure to be able to follow each of these pathways. Questions: 1. If you have a mutation in TT4, which colored compounds would accumulate? Follow the pathway from the top until you reach TT4. If that gene is mutated, then the pathway is interrupted at that point. That means that everything before it will accumulate and everything after it will not (unless there is an alternate gene that will compensate, or a “detour”). What accumulate are the first two compounds. Since they are the drawn
