Term Information [More information on proteolysis]

Accession
GO:0006508
Name
proteolysis
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
peptidolysis, ATP-dependent proteolysis
Definition
The hydrolysis of proteins into smaller polypeptides and/or amino acids by cleavage of their peptide bonds. Source: GOC:mah, GOC:bf
Comment
This term was intentionally placed under 'protein metabolic process ; GO:0019538' rather than 'protein catabolic process ; GO:0030163' to cover all processes centered on breaking peptide bonds, including those involved in protein processing.
