name: para-aminobenzoic acid biosynthetic process
namespace: biological_process
def: "The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of para-aminobenzoic acid, an intermediate in the synthesis of folic acid, a compound which some organisms, e.g. prokaryotes, eukaryotic microbes, and plants, can synthesize de novo. Others, notably mammals, cannot. In yeast, it is present as a factor in the B complex of vitamins." [ISBN:0198506732, PMID:11377864, PMID:11960743]
