Probable metabolic pathway for the biosynthesis of 3-methylbutanal from l-leucine degradation by B. thermosphacta. All the genes encoding the necessary enzymes for the direct (dark line) and the indirect (gray line) pathways were present. Alcohol dehydrogenase was also present. BCAA refrers to branched-chain amino acids. *The kdcA gene is fragmented in B. thermosphacta CD 337. The underlined gene bkdAB is fragmented in BSAS1 3
