GO:0016209 antioxidant activity

Term Information

ID GO:0016209
Name antioxidant activity
Ontology Molecular Function
Definition Inhibition of the reactions brought about by dioxygen (O2) or peroxides. Usually the antioxidant is effective because it can itself be more easily oxidized than the substance protected. The term is often applied to components that can trap free radicals, thereby breaking the chain reaction that normally leads to extensive biological damage.
