SpeciesSaccharomyces cerevisiae
StrainBaker's yeast
Description4-Amino-4-deoxychorismic acid is a metabolite of chorismate in the p-aminobenzoate biosynthesis pathway. This pathway leads to the tetrahydrofolate biosynthesis pathway. Tetrahydrofolate (vitamin B9) is the parent structure of the large family of folates coenzymes. Folates are essential cofactors that facilitate the transfer of one-carbon units from donor molecules into important biosynthetic pathways leading to methionine, purine, and pyrimidine biosynthesis.
