Interesting online CONFCHEM discussion going on right now on the ChemWiki and
greater STEMWiki Hyperlibary project. Come join the discussion.

Appendix I: Index of enzymatic reactions by pathway

Table of Contents

While Organic Chemistry With a Biological Emphasis is organized, like most sophomore-level organic chemistry texts, around a structural and mechanistic framework, students of biochemistry may often want to clarify the mechanism of an enzymatic reaction which they encounter when studying the central metabolic pathways.  An excellent resource for this purpose is John McMurry's The Organic Chemistry of Biological Pathways (Roberts and Company, 2005), but also helpful will be this index of enzymatic reactions organized by pathway, with links to sections/problems in this text where the reaction mechanism is addressed.  Sections/problems listed with an asterisk (*) do not discuss the exact reaction indicated, but do discuss a closely related reaction.

EC numbers are provided whenever possible, with links to the corresponding page in the BRENDA database of enzymes. Clicking on the 'reaction flask' icon on a BRENDA page brings up the reaction diagram.
