Accession
GO:0016129
Name
phytosteroid biosynthetic process
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
phytosteroid anabolism, phytosteroid biosynthesis, phytosteroid formation, phytosteroid synthesis
Alternate IDs
None
Definition
The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of phytosteroids, steroids that differ from animal steroids in having substitutions at C24 and/or a double bond at C22. Phytosteroids are so named because they occur in higher plants; some, notably ergosterol, are also found in fungi. Source: ISBN:0471331309, GOC:go_curators, GOC:mah
