Accession
GO:0006779
Name
porphyrin-containing compound biosynthetic process
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
porphyrin anabolism, porphyrin biosynthesis, porphyrin biosynthetic process, porphyrin formation, porphyrin synthesis
Alternate IDs

Definition
The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of any member of a large group of derivatives or analogs of porphyrin. Porphyrin consists of a ring of four pyrrole nuclei linked each to the next at their alpha positions through a methine group. Source: ISBN:0198506732, Wikipedia:Porphyrin#Natural_formation, GOC:jl
