MetaCyc Pathways Class: Polyketides Biosynthesis

This class contains pathways of biosynthesis of polyketides, which are derived from the polymerization of acetyl and propionyl subunits. Polyketides possess a large structural diversity which is reflected by their different bioactivities. Polyketides also serve as building blocks for a variety of other secondary metabolites.
