Accession:GO:0046273 term browser browse the term
Definition:The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the breakdown of lignans, any member of a class of plant metabolites related to lignins. Lignans are usually found as phenylpropanoid dimers in which the phenylpropanoid units are linked tail to tail and thus having a 2,3 dibenzylbutane skeleton, but higher oligomers can also exist.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: lignan breakdown;   lignan catabolism;   lignan degradation
