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.

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