id: GO:0018189
name: pyrroloquinoline quinone biosynthetic process
namespace: biological_process
type: go
obsolete: False

Description: The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of the cofactor pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ); it is synthesized from a small peptide containing tyrosine and glutamic acid; these amino acids in the peptide are multiply cross-linked and the rest of the peptide is removed.
