Term Information

Accession
GO:0019332
Name
aerobic respiration, using nitrite as electron donor
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
nitrite oxidation
Alternate IDs
None
Definition
The oxidation of nitrite (NO2) to nitrate (NO3), using oxygen (O2) as the electron acceptor. Nitrite oxidation is the final step in nitrification, the oxidation of ammonia to nitrate, and nitrite oxidoreductase (NOR) is the key enzyme complex that catalyzes the conversion of nitrite to nitrate in nitrite oxidizing species.
