This class contains pathways of biosynthesis of coenzyme A, its precursor, pantothenate, and its derivatives. CoA acts in metabolism as carrier of acyl groups.
Cofactors, Prosthetic Groups, Electron Carriers Biosynthesis
Note: This class is a variant class, i.e. its purpose is to group together a set of variant pathways. Variant pathways are those that accomplish roughly the same biological function, such as degradation of a given starting material, or biosynthesis of an end product. The variant pathways may or may not share any common reactions.
