MetaCyc Pathways Class: Visual Cycles

This class holds patghways that describe the visual cycles found in different organisms, which enable the regeneration of the visual pigment chromophore.

Parent Classes:
Vitamin A Biosynthesis

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.

the visual cycle (insects),
the visual cycle I (vertebrates),
