GO term:nitrogen compound metabolic process
Synonym: nitrogen compound metabolism
GO id:GO:0006807
Definition:The chemical reactions and pathways involving organic or inorganic compounds that contain nitrogen, including (but not limited to) nitrogen fixation, nitrification, denitrification, assimilatory/dissimilatory nitrate reduction and the interconversion of nitrogenous organic matter and ammonium.
CommentsNote that amino acid and derivative metabolism should not be annotated here. Instead use the 'amino acid and derivative metabolism' node.
