This class contains pathways of synthesis by various organisms of the amino acid, cysteine. Cysteine is a component of protein; it also participates in a number of biosyntheses and metabolic conversions.
Proteinogenic Amino Acids 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.
