Term Information [More information on retinal metabolic process]

Accession
GO:0042574
Name
retinal metabolic process
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
retinal metabolism, retinaldehyde metabolic process, retinaldehyde metabolism
Definition
The chemical reactions and pathways involving retinal, a compound that plays an important role in the visual process in most vertebrates. In the retina, retinal combines with opsins to form visual pigments. Retinal is one of the forms of vitamin A. Source: GOC:curators, ISBN:0198506732, CHEBI:15035
