Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0009234 - menaquinone biosynthetic process

Synonyms: menaquinone anabolism, menaquinone biosynthesis, menaquinone formation, menaquinone synthesis, menatetrenone biosynthesis, menatetrenone biosynthetic process, multiprenylmenaquinone biosynthesis, multiprenylmenaquinone biosynthetic process, vitamin K2 biosynthesis, vitamin K2 biosynthetic process

Definition: The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of any of the menaquinones. Structurally, menaquinones consist of a methylated naphthoquinone ring structure and side chains composed of a variable number of unsaturated isoprenoid residues. Menaquinones that have vitamin K activity and are known as vitamin K2.
