Descriptor in English: Protein Binding
Descriptor in Spanish: Unión Proteica
Descriptor in Portuguese: Ligação Proteica
Descriptor in French: Liaison aux protéines
Entry term(s): Binding, Protein
Plasma Protein Binding Capacity
Tree number(s): G02.111.679
G03.808
Scope note: The process in which substances, either endogenous or exogenous, bind to proteins, peptides, enzymes, protein precursors, or allied compounds. Specific protein-binding measures are often used as assays in diagnostic assessments.
Annotation: NIM; restrict to the chem or metab binding mechanism; coord NIM with substance being bound /metab (IM) + specific protein /metab (IM); do not use with receptors terms unless the substance bound to the receptor is a protein & the binding mechanism is discussed; do not confuse with BINDING PROTEINS see CARRIER PROTEINS
Allowable Qualifiers: DE drug effects
ES ethics
GE genetics
IM immunology
PH physiology
RE radiation effects
