This class contains the slightly differing pathways by which various organisms synthesize the amino acid phenylalanine which is a constituent of proteins. Phenylalanine also is a starting point for the synthesis of phenylpropanoids.
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.
