Definition:The chemical reactions and pathways, including anabolism and catabolism, by which living organisms transform chemical substances. Metabolic processes typically transform small molecules, but also include macromolecular processes such as DNA repair and replication, and protein synthesis and degradation.
Comment:Note that metabolic processes do not include single functions or processes such as protein-protein interactions, protein-nucleic acids, nor receptor-ligand interactions.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: metabolism
 narrow_synonym: metabolic process resulting in cell growth;   metabolism resulting in cell growth;   multicellular organism metabolic process
 related_synonym: single-organism metabolic process
 alt_id: GO:0044236;   GO:0044710
