Species: Rattus norvegicus
RGD Object: Gene
Symbol: Star
Name: steroidogenic acute regulatory protein
Acc ID: GO:0018894
Term: dibenzo-p-dioxin metabolic process
Definition: The chemical reactions and pathways involving dibenzo-p-dioxin, a substance composed of two benzene rings linked by two ether bonds. Dibenzo-p-dioxins are generated as by-products in the manufacturing of herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, paper pulp bleaching, and in incineration, and can accumulate in milk and throughout the food chain, creating significant health concern.
Definition Source(s): UM-BBD_pathwayID:dpd
