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
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.
