Tree number(s): D12.776.157
Scope note: Proteins that bind or transport specific substances in the blood, within the cell, or across cell membranes.
Annotation: do not confuse entry term BINDING PROTEINS with PROTEIN BINDING; do not use CARRIER PROTEINS if the protein functions as a receptor: use instead the pertinent receptors term; not for antigenic carriers ( = ANTIGENS)
