Aquifex aeolicus VF5 Pathways Class: Quinol and Quinone Biosynthesis

This class contains pathways of synthesis of various quinones that participate in respiratory electron transport, through which a trans-membrane ion gradient is generated that serves as a source of energy. Biosynthesis of vitamin E, a quinone, is included here as well as in the class, "Vitamins".
