Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0006006 - glucose metabolic process

Synonyms: cellular glucose metabolic process, glucose metabolism

Definition: The chemical reactions and pathways involving glucose, the aldohexose gluco-hexose. D-glucose is dextrorotatory and is sometimes known as dextrose; it is an important source of energy for living organisms and is found free as well as combined in homo- and hetero-oligosaccharides and polysaccharides.
