Definition
 
enEnglish
Metabolism definition: The chemical reactions that occur within the cells, tissues, or an organism. These processes include both the biosynthesis (ANABOLISM) and the breakdown (CATABOLISM) of organic materials utilized by the living organism.
metabolism definition: sum of chemical changes that occur within the tissues of an organism consisting of anabolism (biosynthesis) and catabolism; the buildup and breakdown of molecules for utilization by the organism.
metabolism definition: The total of all chemical changes that take place in a cell or an organism. These changes produce energy and basic materials needed for important life processes.
metabolic process 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. [GOC:go_curators, ISBN:0198547684]
Intermediary Metabolism definition: All the reactions in an organism concerned with storing and generating metabolic energy and with the biosynthesis of low-molecular weight compounds, energy-storage compounds, and basic materials needed for important life processes. It does not include nucleic acid and protein synthesis.
metabolism definition: Used with organs, cells and subcellular fractions, organisms, and diseases for biochemical changes and metabolism. 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, pharmacokinetics, and secretion use the specific subheadings.
Cell Respiration definition: The metabolic process of all living cells (animal and plant) in which oxygen is used to provide a source of energy for the cell.
aerobic respiration definition: The enzymatic release of energy from organic compounds (especially carbohydrates and fats) which requires oxygen as the terminal electron acceptor. [GOC:jl, ISBN:0140513590]
cellular respiration definition: The enzymatic release of energy from organic compounds (especially carbohydrates and fats) which either requires oxygen (aerobic respiration) or does not (anaerobic respiration). [ISBN:0140513590, ISBN:0198506732 "Oxford Dictionary of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology"]
cellular respiration definition: metabolic process of all living cells; respiration is an oxidation-reduction reaction involving an oxidant (electron acceptor) and a reductant (electron donor); aerobes use oxygen as the electron acceptor.

métabolisme definition: Ensemble des transformations moléculaires et des transferts d'énergie qui se déroulent de manière ininterrompue dans la cellule ou l'organisme vivant. C'est un processus ordonné, qui fait intervenir des processus de dégradation (catabolisme) et de synthèse organique (anabolisme).
 
Examples
 

A major focus in the study of metabolism and disposition of trichloroethylene (TCE) is to identify metabolites that can be used reliably to assess flux through the various pathways of TCE metabolism and to identify those metabolites that are causally associated with toxic responses.

L H Lash et al.

Environmental Health Perspectives 108 (Suppl 2), 01 May 2000

Sex-, species-, and strain-dependent differences in absorption and distribution of TCE may play some role in explaining differences in metabolism and susceptibility to toxicity from TCE exposure.

L H Lash et al.

Environmental Health Perspectives 108 (Suppl 2), 01 May 2000

TCE undergoes metabolism by two major pathways, cytochrome P450 (P450)-dependent oxidation and conjugation with glutathione (GSH).

L H Lash et al.

Environmental Health Perspectives 108 (Suppl 2), 01 May 2000

Specifically, metabolism of the cysteine conjugate of TCE by the cysteine conjugate ss-lyase generates a reactive metabolite that is nephrotoxic and may be nephrocarcinogenic.

L H Lash et al.

Environmental Health Perspectives 108 (Suppl 2), 01 May 2000

A synthesis of this information is then presented to assess how experimental data, from either animals or from (italic)in vitro (/italic)studies, can be extrapolated to humans for risk assessment. (italic)Key words(/italic): conjugate beta-lyase, cysteine glutathione, cytochrome P450, glutathione (italic)S(/italic)-transferases, metabolism, sex dependence, species dependence, tissue dependence, trichloroethylene.
