This class contains pathways of synthesis of the amino acid, L-proline, from precursor metabolites, other amino acids and from D-proline. L-proline is a constituent of proteins and it is as an osmotic protectant.
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.
