Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0048037 - cofactor binding

Definition: Interacting selectively and non-covalently with a cofactor, a substance that is required for the activity of an enzyme or other protein. Cofactors may be inorganic, such as the metal atoms zinc, iron, and copper in certain forms, or organic, in which case they are referred to as coenzymes. Cofactors may either be bound tightly to active sites or bind loosely with the substrate.
