Term Information [More information on galactose metabolic process]

Accession
GO:0006012
Name
galactose metabolic process
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
galactose metabolism
Definition
The chemical reactions and pathways involving galactose, the aldohexose galacto-hexose. D-galactose is widely distributed in combined form in plants, animals and microorganisms as a constituent of oligo- and polysaccharides; it also occurs in galactolipids and as its glucoside in lactose and melibiose.
