CoMetGeNe: mining conserved neighborhood patterns in metabolic and genomic contexts
TLDR
CoMetGeNe is an exploratory tool at both the genomic and the metabolic levels, leading to insights into the conservation of functionally related clusters of neighboring enzyme-coding genes.
An appeal to magic? The discovery of a non-enzymatic metabolism and its role in the origins of life
TLDR
It is discussed that, on the basis of non-enzymatic metabolism-like networks, one can elaborate stepwise scenarios for the origin of metabolic pathways, a situation that increasingly renders the origins of metabolism a tangible problem.
Enzyme Annotation and Metabolic Reconstruction Using KEGG.
TLDR
This work shows how the tools available at the KEGG website including BlastKOALA and KEGg Mapper can be utilized for enzyme annotation and metabolic reconstruction, and presents knowledge-based prediction methods for functional characterization of amino acid sequences using the K EGG resource.
New insights on the Dynamic Cellular Metabolism
TLDR
A new framework for molecular information storage in the cell is presented, characterized by two functionally and molecularly interrelated systems: a dynamic, flexible and adaptive system (metabolic memory) and an essentially conservative system (genetic memory).
Primordial Krebs-cycle-like non-enzymatic reactions detected by mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance
TLDR
These results strengthen previous conclusions about the existence of unifying reaction conditions that enables a series of co-occurring metabolism-like non-enzymatic Krebs cycle reactions, and discuss why constraints applying to metabolism disentangle concentration from importance of any reaction intermediates.
Automated interpretation of metabolic capacity from genome and metagenome sequences
TLDR
This work describes how genome annotation is performed in KEGG using the manually created KO database and the computationally generated SSDB database, and describes how reaction modules for improving annotation and signature modules for inferring metabolic capacity are introduced.
Development of an Algorithm for Reconstructing a Comprehensive Pathway Model: Application to Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
An algorithm for the reconstruction of a comprehensive genetic pathway model from a known metabolic pathway database, which considers the interactions of the by-products, in addition to the main products, is developed.
KEGG: new perspectives on genomes, pathways, diseases and drugs
TLDR
The content has been expanded and the quality improved irrespective of whether or not the KOs appear in the three molecular network databases, and the newly introduced addendum category of the GENES database is a collection of individual proteins whose functions are experimentally characterized and from which an increasing number of KOs are defined.
KEGG as a reference resource for gene and protein annotation
TLDR
The KEGG GENES database now includes viruses, plasmids, and the addendum category for functionally characterized proteins that are not represented in complete genomes, and new automatic annotation servers, BlastKOalA and GhostKOALA, are made available utilizing the non-redundant pangenome data set generated from theGENES database.

Systematic Analysis of Enzyme-Catalyzed Reaction Patterns and Prediction of Microbial Biodegradation Pathways
TLDR
A knowledge-based approach for understanding reactivity and metabolic fate in enzyme-catalyzed reactions in a given organism or group is presented and a scheme for predicting bacterial biodegradation pathways given chemical structures of, for example, environmental compounds is developed.
Computational assignment of the EC numbers for genomic-scale analysis of enzymatic reactions.
TLDR
A computerized method to automatically assign the EC numbers up to the sub-subclasses, i.e., without the fourth serial number for substrate specificity, given pairs of substrates and products is reported.

Development of a chemical structure comparison method for integrated analysis of chemical and genomic information in the metabolic pathways.
TLDR
This work presents an efficient algorithm for comparing two chemical structures of compounds, where the chemical structure is treated as a graph consisting of atoms as nodes and covalent bonds as edges, and introduced heuristics to accelerate the clique finding and to detect optimal local matches.

TLDR
Recuritment of enzymes for new pathways did not necessarily require the sequential and backwardly evolving progression of evolutionary steps required by the hypothesis of retrograde evolution of biochemical pathways.

TLDR
A simple method for graph comparison to identify local similarities, termed correlated clusters, between two graphs, which allows gaps and mismatches of nodes and edges and is especially suitable for detecting biological features.
