Mycolic acids are believed to play a crucial role in the architecture of the mycobacterial envelope. However, very few steps of their biosynthetic pathway have yet been elucidated. We previously isolated [Dubnau, E., Lanéelle, M. A., Soares, S., Bénichou, A., Vaz, T., Promé, D., Promé, J. C., Daffé, M. & Quémard, A.
