Steroidogenesis pathway

At right is a selection of images that can be regarded as milestones in the development of the steroidogenesis diagram. They are given chronological numbers, with the final version given as number "5" in the results section. Image "4" availed for even easier creation of subsequent works by being a vector image , that is, an image based on a few adjustable points in space rather than millions of pixels. Therefore, subsequent derivatives can easily be edited by free vector graphics editors, in this case Inkscape . Compared to "4", the final version "5" had the following additions:

Plants , most bacteria , and some protozoa such as malaria parasites have the ability to produce isoprenoids using an alternative pathway called the methylerythritol phosphate (MEP) or non-mevalonate pathway . [8] The output of both the mevalonate pathway and the MEP pathway are the same, IPP and DMAPP, however the enzymatic reactions to convert acetyl-CoA into IPP are entirely different. In higher plants, the MEP pathway operates in plastids while the mevalonate pathway operates in the cytosol . [8] Examples of bacteria that contain the MEP pathway include Escherichia coli and pathogens such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis .
