I couldn't find this question directly asked so I thought I would ask it In Fundamentals of Biochemistry 3e (Voet et al), it has a small small little comment about pyrimidine synthesis: (In a diagram ...
I know that the human body can synthesise vitamin D from cholesterol, but can it do so from phytosterols?
I know this might seem contradictory since by definition a vitamin is an essential part of the diet but I have read that nicotinamide, a form of vitamin B3, can be synthesised from L-tryptophan. Is it ...

I just know that Acetyl-CoA is a positive allosteric modulator for pyruvate carboxylase, but I cannot find anything else.
This picture shows one of the steps of heme synthesis. In this step two propanoate groups of coproporphyrinogen III are decarboxylated to form protoporphyrinogen IX. The enzyme that catalyses this ...
During chemosynthesis (for example in tube worms at the bottom of the ocean), how are the various gases like N2, CO2, O2, and CH4 used?
