MetaCyc Pathways Class: Dimethylsulfoniopropanoate Biosynthesis

Synonyms: Dimethylsulfoniopropionate Biosynthesis

This class holds pathways for the biosynthesis of the osmolyte dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP).

Parent Classes:
Organic Solutes 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.

dimethylsulfoniopropanoate biosynthesis I (Wollastonia),
dimethylsulfoniopropanoate biosynthesis II (Spartina),
dimethylsulfoniopropanoate biosynthesis III (algae)
