NameIPP biosynthesis
DescriptionIsopentenyl pyrophosphate (IPP) is the common intermediate of isoprenoid metabolism which includes the biosynthesis of terpenoid natural products, sterols, bile acids, carotenoids, vitamins K and E, isoprene and other prenylated compounds. IPP may be synthesized via one of two separate pathways, the mevalonate pathway is typical of eukaryotes while the deoxyxylulose pathway is typical of prokaryotes. This property summarizes the states of the two child properties, IPP biosynthesis via mevalonate and IPP biosynthesis from deoxyxylulose.
