Accession
GO:0042414
Name
epinephrine metabolic process
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
adrenaline metabolic process, adrenaline metabolism, epinephrine metabolism
Definition
The chemical reactions and pathways involving epinephrine, a hormone produced by the medulla of the adrenal glands that increases heart activity, improves the power and prolongs the action of muscles, and increases the rate and depth of breathing. It is synthesized by the methylation of norepinephrine. Source: ISBN:0192801023, ISBN:0198506732, GOC:jl
