pentose-phosphate shunt
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
hexose monophosphate pathway, pentose phosphate pathway, pentose phosphate shunt, pentose-phosphate pathway
Alternate IDs

Definition
The glucose-6-phosphate catabolic process in which, coupled to NADPH synthesis, glucose-6-P is oxidized with the formation of carbon dioxide (CO2) and ribulose 5-phosphate; ribulose 5-P then enters a series of reactions interconverting sugar phosphates. The pentose phosphate pathway is a major source of reducing equivalents for biosynthesis reactions and is also important for the conversion of hexoses to pentoses.
