MetaCyc Pathways Class: L-phenylalanine Degradation

This class contains pathways by which various organisms degrade the amino acid, phenylalanine, to utilize it as a source of nutrients and metabolic energy.

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-phenylalanine degradation I (aerobic),
L-phenylalanine degradation II (anaerobic),
L-phenylalanine degradation III,
L-phenylalanine degradation IV (mammalian, via side chain),
L-phenylalanine degradation V
