Accession:PW:0000037 term browser browse the term
Definition:Those metabolic reactions involving sulfur - a component of methionine and cysteine amino acids and of co-enzymes and vitamins. It also serves as electron donor in anaerobic respiration. Microorganisms and plants can incorporate inorganic sulfate into bioinorganic compounds; higher organisms derive them from diet.
Synonyms:related_synonym: sulfur compound metabolic process
