Term Information [More information on dibenzo-p-dioxin metabolic process]

Accession
GO:0018894
Name
dibenzo-p-dioxin metabolic process
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
dibenzo-p-dioxin metabolism, oxanthrene metabolic process, oxanthrene metabolism, phenodioxin metabolic process, phenodioxin metabolism
Definition
The chemical reactions and pathways involving dibenzo-p-dioxin, a substance composed of two benzene rings linked by two ether bonds. Dibenzo-p-dioxins are generated as by-products in the manufacturing of herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, paper pulp bleaching, and in incineration, and can accumulate in milk and throughout the food chain, creating significant health concern.
