MetaCyc Pathways Class: L-tryptophan Degradation

Summary:
This class contains pathways by which various organisms utilize the amino acid, tryptophan as a source of nutrients and energy as well as to convert it to the plant hormone, auxin.

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-tryptophan degradation I (via anthranilate) ,
L-tryptophan degradation II (via pyruvate) ,
L-tryptophan degradation III (eukaryotic) ,
L-tryptophan degradation IV (via indole-3-lactate) ,
L-tryptophan degradation to 2-amino-3-carboxymuconate semialdehyde ,
L-tryptophan degradation V (side chain pathway) ,
L-tryptophan degradation VI (via tryptamine) ,
L-tryptophan degradation VII (via indole-3-pyruvate) ,
L-tryptophan degradation VIII (to tryptophol) ,
L-tryptophan degradation IX ,
L-tryptophan degradation X (mammalian, via tryptamine) ,
L-tryptophan degradation XI (mammalian, via kynurenine) ,
L-tryptophan degradation XII (Geobacillus)
