Chorismate via Shikimate Pathway
Species Mycobacterium tuberculosis
The shikimate pathway leads to the biosynthesis of chorismate, which, in mycobacteria, is a precursor of aromatic amino acids, naphthoquinones, menaquinones and siderophores. The enzymes of this pathway are attractive pharmaceutical targets, as the pathway is absent from mammals, and there are no redundancies in it (Herrmann and Weaver, 1999).
