MetaCyc Pathways Class: Isoflavonoids Biosynthesis

This class contains pathways of biosynthesis of isoflavonoids, which are phenolic compounds characterized by a unique 2,3-aryl migration on the B ring. The isoflavonoids are mostly restricted to the legume family. Isoflavonoids are involved in many aspects of plant-plant and plant-environment interactions and exhibit e.g. estrogenic activities.
