Term Detail
GO term:glucocorticoid metabolic process
Synonym: glucocorticoid metabolism
Synonym: glucocorticosteroid metabolic process
Synonym: glucocorticosteroid metabolism
GO id:GO:0008211
Definition:The chemical reactions and pathways involving glucocorticoids, hormonal C21 corticosteroids synthesized from cholesterol. Glucocorticoids act primarily on carbohydrate and protein metabolism, and have anti-inflammatory effects.
Number of paths to term: 5
