Pathway Summary from MetaCyc:
The aromatic amino acids L-phenylalanine, L-tyrosine and L-tryptophan are biosynthesized from the principal common precursor chorismate. The conversion of chorismate to prephenate leads to the terminal pathways of L-phenylalanine and L-tyrosine biosynthesis. The conversion of chorismate to anthranilate leads to the biosynthesis of L-tryptophan. chorismate is also the precursor for biosynthesis of other essential compunds, as shown in the superpathway of chorismate metabolism. Reviewed in Pittard, J. and J. Yang (2008) "Biosynthesis of the Aromatic Aminio Acids." EcoSal 3.6.1.8 [ECOSAL].

Subpathways: tyrosine biosynthesis I, phenylalanine biosynthesis I, tryptophan biosynthesis
