Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0005488 - binding

Definition: The selective, non-covalent, often stoichiometric, interaction of a molecule with one or more specific sites on another molecule.

Summary:
Note that this term is in the subset of terms that should not be used for direct, manual gene product annotation. Please choose a more specific child term, or request a new one if no suitable term is available. For ligands that bind to signal transducing receptors, consider the molecular function term 'receptor binding ; GO:0005102' and its children.
