This subsection of the ‘General annotation (Comments)’ section describes the metabolic pathway(s) associated with a protein.
The ‘Pathway’ subsection uses a structured hierarchy of controlled vocabulary. Each process is split up into ‘super-pathway’, ‘pathway’ and/or ‘sub-pathway’ associated with the protein. When known, the step number mediated by the protein within the pathway is also indicated.
When the metabolic pathway is not fully known, we only indicate the super-pathway and pathway labels.
When a protein participates in different pathways or in different steps of the same pathway, they are all listed on individual lines in the ‘Pathway’ subsections.
The ‘Pathway’ subsection provides links to UniPathway, a collection of manually curated metabolic pathways.
