Term Detail
GO term:binding
Synonym: ligand
GO id:GO:0005488
Definition:The selective, non-covalent, often stoichiometric, interaction of a molecule with one or more specific sites on another molecule.
CommentsFor ligands that bind to signal transducing receptors, consider the molecular function term 'receptor binding ; GO:0005102' and its children.
Number of paths to term: 1
