sensory perception of pain(GO:0019233)biological_processThe series of events required for an organism to receive a painful stimulus, convert it to a molecular signal, and recognize and characterize the signal. Pain is medically defined as the physical sensation of discomfort or distress caused by injury or illness, so can hence be described as a harmful stimulus which signals current (or impending) tissue damage. Pain may come from extremes of temperature, mechanical damage, electricity or from noxious chemical substances. This is a neurological process.


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.
