MetaCyc Compound Class: a cyclitol

Superclasses: an alcohola cyclic alcohol

Summary:
Cyclitols are cyclic polyols - cycloalkanes containing one hydroxyl group on three or more ring atoms.

Child Classes: an inositol (107)

Instances:
valienamine

Unification Links: ChEBI:23451

Reactions known to consume the compound:

Not in pathways:
a cyclic alcohol + a quinone → a cyclic ketone + a quinol

Reactions known to produce the compound:

β-D-glucuronide and D-glucuronate degradation :
a β-D-glucuronoside + H2O → D-glucopyranuronate + an alcohol

glycerophosphodiester degradation :
a glycerophosphodiester + H2O → an alcohol + sn-glycerol 3-phosphate + H+

phosphate acquisition :
a phosphate monoester + H2O → an alcohol + phosphate

Not in pathways:
an organic hydroperoxide + NADH + H+an alcohol + NAD+ + H2O
a 6-phospho-β-D-galactoside + H2O → D-galactopyranose 6-phosphate + an alcohol
an α-D-glucuronoside + H2O → D-glucopyranuronate + an alcohol
an α amino acid ester + H2O → an alcohol + an α amino acid + H+
a phosphate monoester + H2O → an alcohol + phosphate
RH + a reduced [NADPH-hemoprotein reductase] + oxygen → ROH + an oxidized [NADPH-hemoprotein reductase] + H2O

In Reactions of unknown directionality:

Not in pathways:
an alcohol + 3'-phosphoadenylyl-sulfate = adenosine 3',5'-bisphosphate + an organosulfate + H+
an alcohol + NAD(P)+ = an aldehyde + NAD(P)H + H+
an alcohol + NADP+ = an aldehyde + NADPH + H+
an alcohol + acetyl-CoA = an acetic ester + coenzyme A
trans-cinnamoyl-β-D-glucoside + an alcohol = alkyl cinnamate + D-glucopyranose
2 protein cysteines + an organic hydroperoxide = a protein disulfide + an alcohol + H2O
an organic molecule + an organic hydroperoxide = 2 an alcohol
an organic molecule + hydrogen peroxide = an alcohol + H2O
