GO:0009055 electron carrier activity

Term Information

ID GO:0009055
Name electron carrier activity
Ontology Molecular Function
Definition Any molecular entity that serves as an electron acceptor and electron donor in an electron transport chain. An electron transport chain is a process in which a series of electron carriers operate together to transfer electrons from donors to any of several different terminal electron acceptors to generate a transmembrane electrochemical gradient.
