This term is obsolete. We suggest searching for the text of the ontology term or for a keyword rather than searching for the ontology ID. For more information, please contact us.
Definition:OBSOLETE. The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the breakdown of a cofactor, a substance that is required for the activity of an enzyme or other protein.
Comment:1. Making inferences in GO about compounds based on the cofactor role curated by ChEBI creates relationships that are not always true which violates ontological principles for GO; therefore we will cease making these inferences. 2. It is not meaningful to group metabolic processes that are not all chemically related by the fact that they may be used as a cofactor.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: cofactor breakdown;   cofactor catabolism;   cofactor degradation
