GO Term Name(GO Accession Number)Term TypeDefinition
endoplasmic reticulum(GO:0005783)cellular_componentThe irregular network of unit membranes, visible only by electron microscopy, that occurs in the cytoplasm of many eukaryotic cells. The membranes form a complex meshwork of tubular channels, which are often expanded into slitlike cavities called cisternae. The ER takes two forms, rough (or granular), with ribosomes adhering to the outer surface, and smooth (with no ribosomes attached).


Click on the GO term name to get the PDB entries for which a UniProt entry annotated with this GO term is available. This covers the query level and all lower hierarchical levels.

Click on the GO accession number to get a tree view of the GO hierarchy without information on PDB entries. In this case your query level and all levels of higher hierarchy up to the root level Gene_Ontology (GO:0003673) are displayed.

If you enter the GO tree somewhere and if you want to get a view of the whole tree first click on the GO name. This yields the low-hierarchy part. Then click on the GO accession number of the lowest hierarchical level. This gives a view of the complete tree. Note, that certain GO terms belong to more than one path.
