This view shows enzymes only for those organisms listed below, in the list of taxa known to possess the pathway. If an enzyme name is shown in bold, there is experimental evidence for this enzymatic activity.
Synonyms: β-alanine biosynthesis from proprionate
|Superclasses:||Biosynthesis → Amino Acids Biosynthesis → Individual Amino Acids Biosynthesis → beta Alanine Biosynthesis|
The existence of a biosynthetic pathway from propionate leading to the formation of β-alanine has been shown to exist in bacteria and plants [Stadtman55, Hatch62, Rathinasabapath02]. In several plants, the synthesis of β-alanine from propionate has been shown by radiotracer ([14C]-propionate) experiments [Hatch62, Rathinasabapath02]. The exact intermediate steps of the biosynthesis are uncertain and almost no enzyme information is available for this pathway at the time of this review.
