    GO ID   Ontology GO Term Definition
    6915   Apoptotic Process  A Programmed Cell Death Process Which Begins When a Cell Receives an Internal (e.g. DNA Damage) or External Signal (e.g. an Extracellular Death Ligand) and Proceeds Through a Series of Biochemical Events (signaling Pathway Phase) Which Trigger an Execution Phase. the Execution Phase Is the Last Step of an Apoptotic Process and Is Typically Characterized by Rounding Up of the Cell Retraction of Pseudopodes Reduction of Cellular Volume (pyknosis) Chromatin Condensation Nuclear Fragmentation (karyorrhexis) Plasma Membrane Blebbing and Fragmentation of the Cell Into Apoptotic Bodies. When the Execution Phase Is Completed the Cell Has Died. 
    16032   Viral Process  A Multi Organism Process in Which a Virus Is a Participant. the Other Participant Is the Host. Includes Infection of a Host Cell Replication of the Viral Genome and Assembly of Progeny Virus Particles. in Some Cases the Viral Genetic Material May Integrate Into the Host Genome and Only Subsequently Under Particular Circumstances 'complete' Its Life Cycle. 
    43497   Regulation of Protein Heterodimerization Activity  Any Process That Modulates the Frequency Rate or Extent of Protein Heterodimerization Interacting Selectively with a Nonidentical Protein to Form a Heterodimer. 
    5737   Cytoplasm  All of the Contents of a Cell Excluding the Plasma Membrane and Nucleus But Including Other Subcellular Structures. 
    5739   Mitochondrion  A Semiautonomous Self Replicating Organelle That Occurs in Varying Numbers Shapes and Sizes in the Cytoplasm of Virtually All Eukaryotic Cells. It Is Notably the Site of Tissue Respiration. 
    16020   Membrane  Double Layer of Lipid Molecules That Encloses All Cells and in Eukaryotes Many Organelles; May Be a Single or Double Lipid Bilayer; Also Includes Associated Proteins. 
    16021   Integral Component of Membrane  The Component of a Membrane Consisting of Gene Products and Protein Complexes That Have Some Part That Penetrates At Least One Leaflet of the Membrane Bilayer. This Component Includes Gene Products That Are Buried in the Bilayer with No Exposure Outside the Bilayer. 
    31966   Mitochondrial Membrane  Either of the Lipid Bilayers That Surround the Mitochondrion and Form the Mitochondrial Envelope. 
    5515   Protein Binding  Interacting Selectively and Non Covalently with Any Protein or Protein Complex (a Complex of Two or More Proteins That May Include Other Nonprotein Molecules). 
    42802   Identical Protein Binding  Interacting Selectively and Non Covalently with an Identical Protein or Proteins. 
    42803   Protein Homodimerization Activity  Interacting Selectively and Non Covalently with an Identical Protein to Form a Homodimer. 
    46982   Protein Heterodimerization Activity  Interacting Selectively and Non Covalently with a Nonidentical Protein to Form a Heterodimer. 
    51434   Bh3 Domain Binding  Interacting Selectively and Non Covalently with the Bh3 Domain of a Protein of the Bcl 2 Family. the Bh3 Domain Is a Potent Death Domain and Has an Important Role in Protein Protein Interactions and in Cell Death.
