GO Term cholesterol metabolic process

Name cholesterol metabolic process
Exact Synonym cholesterol metabolism
Definition The chemical reactions and pathways involving cholesterol, cholest-5-en-3 beta-ol, the principal sterol of vertebrates and the precursor of many steroids, including bile acids and steroid hormones. It is a component of the plasma membrane lipid bilayer and of plasma lipoproteins and can be found in all animal tissues.
