MetaCyc Pathways Class: L-lysine Degradation

Summary:
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.

Instances:
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) ,
