Term Information [More information on glutathione metabolic process]

Accession
GO:0006749
Name
glutathione metabolic process
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
glutathione metabolism, oxidized glutathione reduction
Definition
The chemical reactions and pathways involving glutathione, the tripeptide glutamylcysteinylglycine, which acts as a coenzyme for some enzymes and as an antioxidant in the protection of sulfhydryl groups in enzymes and other proteins; it has a specific role in the reduction of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and oxidized ascorbate, and it participates in the gamma-glutamyl cycle.
