Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0006807 - nitrogen compound metabolic process

Synonyms: nitrogen compound metabolism

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.

Note that amino acid and derivative metabolism should not be annotated here. Instead use the 'amino acid and derivative metabolism' node.
