MetaCyc Class: Detoxification

This class contains pathways by which various organisms protect themselves against the harmful effects of toxic compounds. The sole purpose of these pathways is to avoid toxicity, with no other benefit (such as energy or useful metabolites) to the organism.

Parent Classes:

Child Classes:
Acid Resistance (2) ,
Antibiotic Resistance (7) ,
Arsenate Detoxification (5) ,
Cyanide Detoxification (2) ,
Mercury Detoxification (1) ,
Methylglyoxal Detoxification (8) ,
Reactive Oxygen Species Degradation (2)

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.

4-hydroxy-2-nonenal detoxification ,
ascorbate glutathione cycle ,
baicalein degradation (hydrogen peroxide detoxification) ,
cyanate degradation ,
detoxification of reactive carbonyls in chloroplasts ,
farnesylcysteine salvage pathway ,
fluoroacetate degradation ,
furfural degradation ,
glutathione-mediated detoxification I ,
glutathione-mediated detoxification II ,
methanol oxidation to carbon dioxide ,
mycothiol-mediated detoxification ,
oxidized GTP and dGTP detoxification ,
seleno-amino acid detoxification and volatilization III ,
superpathway of seleno-compound metabolism
