Hi All, 

I have a list of compounds names and somehow I would like to retrieve the EC codes of its enzymes using KEGG. For instance lets say that I've two compounds (ie glycine and glucose). I would like to build a table that would give me the Compound ID code and the EC code of its enzymes, which is found on the KEGG webpage for each compound. 

Compound Name Compound ID EC code
Glycine C00037 1.4.1.1         1.4.1.10        1.4.2.1         1.4.3.3 
Glucose C00031 1.1.1.118       1.1.1.119       1.1.1.121       1.1.1.359  

Thanks!

If you have compound id it's as simple as

You can also (I'm not sure of the syntax to get just the top hit)
