GO term:triglyceride metabolic process
Synonym: triacylglycerol metabolic process
Synonym: triacylglycerol metabolism
Synonym: triglyceride metabolism
GO id:GO:0006641
Definition:The chemical reactions and pathways involving triglyceride, any triester of glycerol. The three fatty acid residues may all be the same or differ in any permutation. Triglycerides are important components of plant oils, animal fats and animal plasma lipoproteins.
Number of paths to term: 16
