GO Term binding

Name binding
Narrow Synonym ligand
Definition The selective, non-covalent, often stoichiometric, interaction of a molecule with one or more specific sites on another molecule.
Comment 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.
