Term Information [More information on glycerol transport]

Accession
GO:0015793
Name
glycerol transport
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
The directed movement of glycerol into, out of or within a cell, or between cells, by means of some agent such as a transporter or pore. Glycerol is 1,2,3-propanetriol, a sweet, hygroscopic, viscous liquid, widely distributed in nature as a constituent of many lipids. Source: GOC:ai
