Accession:GO:0030639 term browser browse the term
Definition:The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of polyketides, any of a diverse group of natural products synthesized via linear poly-beta-ketones, which are themselves formed by repetitive head-to-tail addition of acetyl (or substituted acetyl) units indirectly derived from acetate (or a substituted acetate) by a mechanism similar to that for fatty acid biosynthesis but without the intermediate reductive steps.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: polyketide anabolism;   polyketide biosynthesis;   polyketide formation;   polyketide synthesis
