Pathway: Metabolism (Homo sapiens)
Metabolic processes in human cells generate energy through the oxidation of molecules consumed in the diet and mediate the synthesis of diverse essential molecules not taken in the diet as well as the inactivation and elimination of toxic ones generated endogenously or present in the extracellular environment. The processes of energy metabolism can be classified into two groups according to whether the

Pathway: Metabolism of carbohydrates (Homo sapiens)
These pathways together are responsible for: 1) the extraction of energy and carbon skeletons for biosyntheses from dietary sugars and related molecules; 2) the short-term storage of glucose in the body (as glycogen) and its mobilization during a short fast; and 3) the synthesis of glucose from pyruvate during extended fasts

Pathway: Glycosaminoglycan metabolism (Homo sapiens)
Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are long, unbranched polysaccharides containing a repeating disaccharide unit composed of a hexosamine (either N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) or N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc)) and a uronic acid (glucuronate or iduronate). They can be heavily sulfated. GAGs are located primarily in the extracellular matrix (ECM) and on cell membranes, acting as a lubricating fluid for joints and

Pathway: Chondroitin sulfate biosynthesis (Homo sapiens)
Chondroitin sulfate (CS) glycosaminoglycan consists of N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) residues alternating in glycosidic linkages with glucuronic acid (GlcA). GalNAc residues are sulfated to varying degrees on 4- and/or 6- positions. The steps below describe the biosynthesis of a simple CS molecule (Pavao et al. 2006, Silbert & Sugumaran 2002)

Pathway: Chondroitin sulfate/dermatan sulfate metabolism (Homo sapiens)
Chondroitin sulfate (CS) is a sulfated glycosaminoglycan (GAG). CS chains are unbranched polysaccharides of varying length containing two alternating monosaccharides: D-glucuronic acid (GlcA) and N-acetyl-D-galactosamine (GalNAc). The chains are usually attached to proteins forming a proteoglycan. CS is an important structural component of cartilage due to it's ability to withstand compression. It is a

Reaction: CHST3,7 transfer SO4(2-) to position 6 of GalNAc on chondroitin chains (Homo sapiens)
Carbohydrate sulfotransferase 3 (CHST3 also known as C6ST-1) catalyzes the transfer of sulfate (SO4(2-)) from PAPS to position 6 of the N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) residue of chondroitin-containing proteins resulting in chondroitin sulfate (C6S-PG), a major component of cartilage. Defects in CHST3 result in undersulfated CS, weakening cartilage structures and causing spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia wit
