    Chain A,B
    GO ID   Ontology GO Term Definition
    6486   Protein Glycosylation  A Protein Modification Process That Results in the Addition of a Carbohydrate or Carbohydrate Derivative Unit to a Protein Amino Acid E.g. the Addition of Glycan Chains to Proteins. 
    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. 
    6954   Inflammatory Response  The Immediate Defensive Reaction (by Vertebrate Tissue) to Infection or Injury Caused by Chemical or Physical Agents. the Process Is Characterized by Local Vasodilation Extravasation of Plasma Into Intercellular Spaces and Accumulation of White Blood Cells and Macrophages. 
    6955   Immune Response  Any Immune System Process That Functions in the Calibrated Response of an Organism to a Potential Internal or Invasive Threat. 
    7267   Cell Cell Signaling  Any Process That Mediates the Transfer of Information From One Cell to Another. 
    8219   Cell Death  Any Biological Process That Results in Permanent Cessation of All Vital Functions of a Cell. a Cell Should Be Considered Dead When Any One of the Following Molecular or Morphological Criteria Is Met: (1) the Cell Has Lost the Integrity of Its Plasma Membrane; (2) the Cell Including Its Nucleus Has Undergone Complete Fragmentation Into Discrete Bodies (frequently Referred to As "apoptotic Bodies"); And/or (3) Its Corpse (or Its Fragments) Have Been Engulfed by an Adjacent Cell in Vivo. 
    32747   Positive Regulation of Interleukin 23 Production  Any Process That Activates or Increases the Frequency Rate or Extent of Interleukin 23 Production. 
    45672   Positive Regulation of Osteoclast Differentiation  Any Process That Activates or Increases the Frequency Rate or Extent of Osteoclast Differentiation. 
    45944   Positive Regulation of Transcription From RNA Polymerase Ii Promoter  Any Process That Activates or Increases the Frequency Rate or Extent of Transcription From an RNA Polymerase Ii Promoter. 
    71347   Cellular Response to Interleukin 1  Any Process That Results in a Change in State or Activity of a Cell (in Terms of Movement Secretion Enzyme Production Gene Expression Etc.) As a Result of an Interleukin 1 Stimulus. 
    72537   Fibroblast Activation  A Change in the Morphology or Behavior of a Fibroblast Resulting From Exposure to an Activating Factor Such As a Cellular or Soluble Ligand. 
    1900017   Positive Regulation of Cytokine Production Involved in Inflammatory Response  Any Process That Activates or Increases the Frequency Rate or Extent of Cytokine Production Involved in Inflammatory Response. 
    5576   Extracellular Region  The Space External to the Outermost Structure of a Cell. For Cells Without External Protective or External Encapsulating Structures This Refers to Space Outside of the Plasma Membrane. This Term Covers the Host Cell Environment Outside an Intracellular Parasite. 
    5615   Extracellular Space  That Part of a Multicellular Organism Outside the Cells Proper Usually Taken to Be Outside the Plasma Membranes and Occupied by Fluid. 
    9897   External Side of Plasma Membrane  The Leaflet of the Plasma Membrane That Faces Away From the Cytoplasm and Any Proteins Embedded or Anchored in It or Attached to Its Surface. 
    5125   Cytokine Activity  Functions to Control the Survival Growth Differentiation and Effector Function of Tissues and Cells. 
    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).
