  author={Peter D. Karp},
MetaCyc is a metabolic-pathway database (DB) that describes 445 pathways and 1115 enzymes occurring in 158 organisms. As a general reference source on metabolic pathways, MetaCyc serves several purposes in metabolic engineering. It provides an encyclopedic listing of enzymes and their properties to allow a metabolic engineer to find an enzyme whose characteristics solve an engineering problem at hand. It also serves as a reference pathway DB for predicting the metabolic pathway complement of an… CONTINUE READING
