Gene Ontology

The Gene Ontology (GO) consortium has developed a controlled vocabulary of terms split into three categories, or ontologies: cellular component, biological process and molecular function.

The Gene Ontology tables show the GO terms associated with the Ensembl transcripts of this gene. There are three separate GO tables for each gene, corresponding to GO: Biological process, GO: Molecular function and GO: Cellular component.

Ensembl associates GO terms to genes via UniProt mappings. Three-letter evidence codes refer to the evidence used for the initial assignment of GO terms to UniProt records. A summary is below. For more information, see the GO evidence codes page.
