GO term:galactose metabolic process
Synonym: galactose metabolism
GO id:GO:0006012
Definition:The chemical reactions and pathways involving galactose, the aldohexose galacto-hexose. D-galactose is widely distributed in combined form in plants, animals and microorganisms as a constituent of oligo- and polysaccharides; it also occurs in galactolipids and as its glucoside in lactose and melibiose.
Number of paths to term: 4
