Term Information

Accession
GO:0008152
Name
metabolic process
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
metabolism, single-organism metabolic process, metabolic process resulting in cell growth, metabolism resulting in cell growth, multicellular organism metabolic process

Definition
The chemical reactions and pathways, including anabolism and catabolism, by which living organisms transform chemical substances. Metabolic processes typically transform small molecules, but also include macromolecular processes such as DNA repair and replication, and protein synthesis and degradation.

Comment
Note that metabolic processes do not include single functions or processes such as protein-protein interactions, protein-nucleic acids, nor receptor-ligand interactions.
