Term Detail
GO term:collagen metabolic process
Synonym: collagen metabolism
GO id:GO:0032963
Definition:The chemical reactions and pathways involving collagen, any of a group of fibrous proteins of very high tensile strength that form the main component of connective tissue in animals. Collagen is highly enriched in glycine (some regions are 33% glycine) and proline, occurring predominantly as 3-hydroxyproline (about 20%).
Number of paths to term: 5
