Term:melanin biosynthetic process
go back to main search page
Accession:GO:0042438 term browser browse the term
Definition:The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of melanins, pigments largely of animal origin. High molecular weight polymers of indole quinone, they are irregular polymeric structures and are divided into three groups: allomelanins in the plant kingdom and eumelanins and phaeomelanins in the animal kingdom.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: melanin anabolism;   melanin biosynthesis;   melanin formation;   melanin synthesis
