Term Information

Accession
GO:0019331
Name
anaerobic respiration, using ammonium as electron donor
Ontology

Synonyms
anammox, anaerobic ammonium oxidation
Alternate IDs
None
Definition
The oxidation of ammonium (NH4) to nitrogen (N2) in the absence of oxygen, using nitrite (NO2) as the electron acceptor. It is suggested that hydroxylamine and ammonium are combined to yield hydrazine, which is subsequently oxidized to N2. Source: MetaCyc:P303-PWY
