GO:0031386 protein tag

Term Information

ID GO:0031386
Name protein tag
Ontology Molecular Function
Definition A molecular function exhibited by a protein that is covalently attached (AKA tagged or conjugated) to another protein where it acts as a marker, recognized by the cellular apparatus to target the tagged protein for some cellular process such as modification, sequestration, transport or degradation.
PMID:19028679 PMID:20054389 PMID:6305978
Comment Use this term to annotate conjugated tags, not for conjugating enzymes. At the time of writing, all known gene products with this activity are ubiquitin-like, either based on overall sequence similarity or the presence of common motifs and structures.
