Parent Terms Term With Siblings Child Terms
acetyl-CoA biosynthetic process +   
acetyl-CoA catabolic process +   
butyryl-CoA biosynthetic process from acetyl-CoA +  
isopentenyl diphosphate biosynthetic process, methylerythritol 4-phosphate pathway +  
isopentenyl diphosphate biosynthetic process, mevalonate pathway +   
The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of isopentenyl diphosphate, via the intermediate mevalonate. This pathway converts acetate, in the form of acetyl-CoA, to isopentenyl diphosphate (IPP), the fundamental unit in isoprenoid biosynthesis, through a series of mevalonate intermediates.
L-lysine catabolic process to acetyl-CoA +   
L-threonine catabolic process to acetyl-CoA 
tryptophan catabolic process to acetyl-CoA
