    Chain A
    GO ID   Ontology GO Term Definition
    6412   Translation  The Cellular Metabolic Process in Which a Protein Is Formed Using the Sequence of a Mature MRNA Molecule to Specify the Sequence of Amino Acids in a Polypeptide Chain. Translation Is Mediated by the Ribosome and Begins with the Formation of a Ternary Complex Between Aminoacylated Initiator Methionine TRNA GTP and Initiation Factor 2 Which Subsequently Associates with the Small Subunit of the Ribosome and an Mrna. Translation Ends with the Release of a Polypeptide Chain From the Ribosome. 
    6418   TRNA Aminoacylation For Protein Translation  The Synthesis of Aminoacyl TRNA by the Formation of an Ester Bond Between the 3' Hydroxyl Group of the Most 3' Adenosine of the TRNA to Be Used in Ribosome Mediated Polypeptide Synthesis. 
    6434   Seryl TRNA Aminoacylation  The Process of Coupling Serine to Seryl TRNA Catalyzed by Seryl TRNA Synthetase. in TRNA Aminoacylation the Amino Acid Is First Activated by Linkage to AMP and Then Transferred to Either the 2' or the 3' Hydroxyl Group of the 3' Adenosine Residue of the Trna. 
    16260   Selenocysteine Biosynthetic Process  The Chemical Reactions and Pathways Resulting in the Formation of Selenocysteine an Essential Component of Glutathione Peroxidase and Some Other Proteins. 
    97056   Selenocysteinyl Trna(sec) Biosynthetic Process  The Chemical Reactions and Pathways Resulting in the Formation of Selenocysteinyl Trna(sec). This Process Occurs Through the Following Steps: a Unique Serine TRNA with a Uga Recognizing Anticodon Is First Aminoacylated with Serine; This Is Then Phosphorylated by Phosphoseryl Trna[ser]sec Kinase; Lastly Selenium Is Swapped For the Phosphate On the Serine. 
    5737   Cytoplasm  All of the Contents of a Cell Excluding the Plasma Membrane and Nucleus But Including Other Subcellular Structures. 
    166   Nucleotide Binding  Interacting Selectively and Non Covalently with a Nucleotide Any Compound Consisting of a Nucleoside That Is Esterified with (ortho)phosphate or an Oligophosphate At Any Hydroxyl Group On the Ribose or Deoxyribose. 
    4812   Aminoacyl TRNA Ligase Activity  Catalysis of the Formation of Aminoacyl TRNA From ATP Amino Acid and TRNA with the Release of Diphosphate and Amp. 
    4828   Serine TRNA Ligase Activity  Catalysis of the Reaction: ATP + L Serine + Trna(ser) = AMP + Diphosphate + L Seryl Trna(ser). 
    5524   ATP Binding  Interacting Selectively and Non Covalently with ATP Adenosine 5' Triphosphate a Universally Important Coenzyme and Enzyme Regulator. 
    8270   Zinc Ion Binding  Interacting Selectively and Non Covalently with Zinc (zn) Ions. 
    16874   Ligase Activity  Catalysis of the Joining of Two Substances or Two Groups Within a Single Molecule with the Concomitant Hydrolysis of the Diphosphate Bond in ATP or a Similar Triphosphate. 
    46872   Metal Ion Binding  Interacting Selectively and Non Covalently with Any Metal Ion.
