Our database allows the user to search for all the possible routes from any substrate compound to any product. Resulting pathways involve known and novel enzymatic steps that may indicate unidentified enzymatic activities as well as providing potential targets for protein engineering to alter substrate specificity.
Example: Search for a pathway between two metabolites to bridge a gap in a metabolic model.
The reaction map finds all KEGG compounds connected to a given source compound in one, two or more reaction steps.
Example: Search the metabolic environment of a experimentally measured metabolite for pathways that connect the metabolite to the known metabolic network of the organism under study.
