isopentenyl diphosphate biosynthetic process, mevalonate pathway
name: isopentenyl diphosphate biosynthetic process, mevalonate pathway
Description: The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of isopentenyl diphosphate, via the intermediate mevalonate. This pathway converts acetate, in the form of acetyl-CoA, to isopentenyl diphosphate (IPP), the fundamental unit in isoprenoid biosynthesis, through a series of mevalonate intermediates.
