Term Information [More information on cholesterol metabolic process]

Accession
GO:0008203
Name
cholesterol metabolic process
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
cholesterol metabolism
Definition
The chemical reactions and pathways involving cholesterol, cholest-5-en-3 beta-ol, the principal sterol of vertebrates and the precursor of many steroids, including bile acids and steroid hormones. It is a component of the plasma membrane lipid bilayer and of plasma lipoproteins and can be found in all animal tissues. Source: ISBN:0198506732
