Annotation
subheading only: includes "binding", "catabolism", "conversion", "degradation", "pathway", "splitting", "storage", "utilization"; not for "anabolism": use instead /‌biosynthesis; for "absorption", "release", "transport", "uptake" /‌pharmacokinetics is also available; for excretion into the blood use /‌blood, into the cerebrospinal fluid use /‌cerebrospinal fluid, into the urine use /‌urine; for biosynthesis or synthesis use /‌biosynthesis; for metabolic aspects of enzymes use /‌enzymology with Category A, B, and C terms
Scope Note
Used with organs, cells and subcellular fractions, organisms, and diseases for biochemical changes. It is used also with drugs and chemicals for catabolic changes (breakdown of complex molecules into simpler ones). For anabolic processes (conversion of small molecules into large), BIOSYNTHESIS is used. For enzymology and pharmacokinetics use the specific subheadings.
