MetaCyc Pathways Class: Alkaloids Biosynthesis

Summary:
This class contains biosynthetic pathways of alkaloids. Most alkaloids contain cyclic nitrogen. They function as defense compounds. Many alkaloids, including morphine and cocaine, have a high affinity for receptors of neurotransmitters and have pharmacological activities.
