Dear GO editors,
as described in PubMed:19360003, the product of STOML2 and other genes are required for stress-induced mitochondrial fusion/hyperfusion.
I wanted to annotate them with 2 GO terms GO:0033554 cellular response to stress and mitochondrial fusion GO:0008053. However, I have noticed the following comment in the first term definition:
"Note that this term is in the subset of terms that should not be used for direct gene product annotation. Annotations to this term will be removed during annotation QC"
I thus wonder if one should create a GO term "induced mitochondrial fusion/hyperfusion" which seems to me too specific and directly annotate it to that gene. Or use a combination of the terms mentioned before.
What would you suggest?
