Term Information [More information on cofactor metabolic process]

Accession
GO:0051186
Name
cofactor metabolic process
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
cofactor metabolism
Definition
The chemical reactions and pathways involving a cofactor, a substance that is required for the activity of an enzyme or other protein. Cofactors may be inorganic, such as the metal atoms zinc, iron, and copper in certain forms, or organic, in which case they are referred to as coenzymes. Cofactors may either be bound tightly to active sites or bind loosely with the substrate. Source: GOC:ai
