Figure 1 The aspartate family biosynthetic pathway. Enzyme abbreviations: AK-lys, aspartate kinase sensitive to lysine feedback inhibition; AK-thr, aspartate kinase sensitive to threonine feedback inhibition: ASD, aspartic semialdehyde dehydrogenase; HSD, homoserine dehydrogenase; DHDPS, dihydrodipicolinate synthase; TS, threonine synthase; TDH, threonine dehydratase; CS, cystathione-gamma-synthase; SAMS, S-adenosyl methionine synthase. Curved arrows indicate regulation loops by the end products. The (-) symbols indicate feedback inhibition and the (+) stimulation of enzyme activity.
synthetic enzymes, in which putative chloroplastic transit peptides have been identified.

Our internal organs, the colon, liver and intestines, help our bodies eliminate toxic and harmful matter from our bloodstreams and tissues. Often, our systems become overloaded with waste. The very air we breathe, and all of its pollutants, build up in our bodies. Today’s over processed foods and environmental pollutants can easily overwhelm our delicate systems and cause toxic matter to build up in our bodies.
