Noteworthy new manually curated pathways:
- A new superpathway of seleno-compound metabolism brings together five different pathways that have potential importance for phytoremediation of toxic soils as well as human nutrition
- Chrysanthemum seed pods contain an economically important natural pesticide whose production is described in the new pyrethrin biosynthesis pathway.
- Production of the anti-bacterial plant volatile defense compound Sophoraflavanone G (SFG), also called kushenin (in traditional Chinese medicinal recipes) is accomplished through the SFG biosynthetic pathway in Sophora flavescens
- L-N-delta-acetylornithine biosynthesis which generates a non-standard amino acid in Arabidopsis, may also help to protect plants against herbivory.
