    GO ID   Ontology GO Term Definition
    1523   Retinoid Metabolic Process  The Chemical Reactions and Pathways Involving Retinoids Any Member of a Class of Isoprenoids That Contain or Are Derived From Four Prenyl Groups Linked Head to Tail. Retinoids Include Retinol and Retinal and Structurally Similar Natural Derivatives or Synthetic Compounds But Need Not Have Vitamin a Activity. 
    6810   Transport  The Directed Movement of Substances (such As Macromolecules Small Molecules Ions) Into Out of or Within a Cell or Between Cells or Within a Multicellular Organism by Means of Some Agent Such As a Transporter or Pore. 
    7603   Phototransduction Visible Light  The Sequence of Reactions Within a Cell Required to Convert Absorbed Photons From Visible Light Into a Molecular Signal. a Visible Light Stimulus Is Electromagnetic Radiation That Can Be Perceived Visually by an Organism; For Organisms Lacking a Visual System This Can Be Defined As Light with a Wavelength Within the Range 380 to 780 Nm. 
    30198   Extracellular Matrix Organization  A Process That Is Carried Out At the Cellular Level Which Results in the Assembly Arrangement of Constituent Parts or Disassembly of an Extracellular Matrix. 
    42572   Retinol Metabolic Process  The Chemical Reactions and Pathways Involving Retinol One of the Three Compounds That Makes Up Vitamin A. 
    70327   Thyroid Hormone Transport  The Directed Movement of Thyroid Hormone Into Out of or Within a Cell or Between Cells by Means of Some Agent Such As a Transporter or Pore. 
    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. 
    5737   Cytoplasm  All of the Contents of a Cell Excluding the Plasma Membrane and Nucleus But Including Other Subcellular Structures. 
    43234   Protein Complex  A Stable Macromolecular Complex Composed (only) of Two or More Polypeptide Subunits Along with Any Covalently Attached Molecules (such As Lipid Anchors or Oligosaccharide) or Non Protein Prosthetic Groups (such As Nucleotides or Metal Ions). Prosthetic Group in This Context Refers to a Tightly Bound Cofactor. the Component Polypeptide Subunits May Be Identical. 
    70062   Extracellular Exosome  A Membrane Bounded Vesicle That Is Released Into the Extracellular Region by Fusion of the Limiting Endosomal Membrane of a Multivesicular Body with the Plasma Membrane. Extracellular Exosomes Also Simply Called Exosomes Have a Diameter of About 40 100 Nm. 
    5179   Hormone Activity  The Action Characteristic of a Hormone Any Substance Formed in Very Small Amounts in One Specialized Organ or Group of Cells and Carried (sometimes in the Bloodstream) to Another Organ or Group of Cells in the Same Organism Upon Which It Has a Specific Regulatory Action. the Term Was Originally Applied to Agents with a Stimulatory Physiological Action in Vertebrate Animals (as Opposed to a Chalone Which Has a Depressant Action). Usage Is Now Extended to Regulatory Compounds in Lower Animals and Plants and to Synthetic Substances Having Comparable Effects; All Bind Receptors and Trigger Some Biological Process. 
    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). 
    42562   Hormone Binding  Interacting Selectively and Non Covalently with Any Hormone Naturally Occurring Substances Secreted by Specialized Cells That Affect the Metabolism or Behavior of Other Cells Possessing Functional Receptors For the Hormone. 
    42802   Identical Protein Binding  Interacting Selectively and Non Covalently with an Identical Protein or Proteins. 
    46982   Protein Heterodimerization Activity  Interacting Selectively and Non Covalently with a Nonidentical Protein to Form a Heterodimer. 
    70324   Thyroid Hormone Binding  Interacting Selectively and Non Covalently with Thyroxine (t4) or Triiodothyronine (t3) Tyrosine Based Hormones Produced by the Thyroid Gland.
