MetaCyc Pathways Class: L-lysine Degradation

This class contains pathways by which various organisms degrade the amino acid, lysine, to utilize it as a source of nutrients and energy, or, in environments of low pH, to covert lysine to an amine thereby moderating the external acidity.

Parent Classes:
Proteinogenic Amino Acids Degradation

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.

L-lysine degradation I,
L-lysine degradation II (L-pipecolate pathway),
L-lysine degradation III,
L-lysine degradation IV,
L-lysine degradation V,
L-lysine degradation VI,
L-lysine degradation VII,
L-lysine degradation VIII,
L-lysine degradation IX,
L-lysine degradation X,
L-lysine degradation XI (mammalian),
