Summary:
MetaCyc is a curated database of experimentally elucidated metabolic pathways from all domains of life.

MetaCyc contains pathways involved in both primary and secondary metabolism, as well as associated metabolites, reactions, enzymes, and genes. The goal of MetaCyc is to catalog the universe of metabolism by storing a representative sample of each experimentally elucidated pathway.

See the MetaCyc home page for more information.
