Term Information [More information on bacillithiol metabolic process]

Accession
GO:0071792
Name
bacillithiol metabolic process
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
bacillithiol metabolism
Definition
The chemical reactions and pathways involving bacillithiol, the alpha-anomeric glycoside of L-cysteinyl-D-glucosamine with L-malic acid. Bacillithiol, produced widely in the Firmicutes and sporadically in other bacterial lineages, is a low-molecular-weight thiol analogous to mycothiol in the Actinomycetes and glutathione in many species.
