Term Information [More information on starch metabolic process]

Accession
GO:0005982
Name
starch metabolic process
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
starch metabolism
Definition
The chemical reactions and pathways involving starch, the most important reserve polysaccharide in plants. It is a glucan consisting of two components, amylose and amylopectin, which are both glucose homopolymers. Starch is synthesized as a temporary storage form of carbon and can be catabolized to produce sucrose. Source: ISBN:0198506732
