    GO ID   Ontology GO Term Definition
    2088   Lens Development in Camera Type Eye  The Process Whose Specific Outcome Is the Progression of the Lens Over Time From Its Formation to the Mature Structure. the Lens Is a Transparent Structure in the Eye Through Which Light Is Focused Onto the Retina. an Example of This Process Is Found in Mus Musculus. 
    7601   Visual Perception  The Series of Events Required For an Organism to Receive a Visual Stimulus Convert It to a Molecular Signal and Recognize and Characterize the Signal. Visual Stimuli Are Detected in the Form of Photons and Are Processed to Form an Image. 
    34614   Cellular Response to Reactive Oxygen Species  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 a Reactive Oxygen Species Stimulus. Reactive Oxygen Species Include Singlet Oxygen Superoxide and Oxygen Free Radicals. 
    50896   Response to Stimulus  Any Process That Results in a Change in State or Activity of a Cell or an Organism (in Terms of Movement Secretion Enzyme Production Gene Expression Etc.) As a Result of a Stimulus. the Process Begins with Detection of the Stimulus and Ends with a Change in State or Activity or the Cell or Organism. 
    70306   Lens Fiber Cell Differentiation  The Process in Which a Relatively Unspecialized Cell Acquires Specialized Features of a Lens Fiber Cell Any of the Elongated Tightly Packed Cells That Make Up the Bulk of the Mature Lens in the Camera Type Eye. the Cytoplasm of a Lens Fiber Cell Is Devoid of Most Intracellular Organelles Including the Cell Nucleus and Contains Primarily Crystallins a Group of Water Soluble Proteins Expressed in Vary Large Quantities. 
    5634   Nucleus  A Membrane Bounded Organelle of Eukaryotic Cells in Which Chromosomes Are Housed and Replicated. in Most Cells the Nucleus Contains All of the Cell's Chromosomes Except the Organellar Chromosomes and Is the Site of RNA Synthesis and Processing. in Some Species or in Specialized Cell Types RNA Metabolism or DNA Replication May Be Absent. 
    5737   Cytoplasm  All of the Contents of a Cell Excluding the Plasma Membrane and Nucleus But Including Other Subcellular Structures. 
    5212   Structural Constituent of Eye Lens  The Action of a Molecule That Contributes to the Structural Integrity of the Lens of an Eye. 
    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).
