Term:hemoglobin catabolic process
go back to main search page
Accession:GO:0042540 term browser browse the term
Definition:The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the breakdown of hemoglobin, an oxygen carrying, conjugated protein containing four heme groups and globin; especially, the proteolytic cleavage of hemoglobin to yield free heme, peptides, and amino acids.
Comment:Note that 'hydrolysis' is actually a reaction rather than a process. The synonym 'hemoglobin hydrolysis' was the text string associated with the secondary ID GO:0020029, which was retained because its definition did describe a process.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: haemoglobin catabolic process;   haemoglobin catabolism;   hemoglobin breakdown;   hemoglobin catabolism;   hemoglobin degradation
 narrow_synonym: haemoglobin hydrolysis;   hemoglobin hydrolysis
 alt_id: GO:0020029
