But, I did find this term, and related?
GO term: *induction of host defense response*
GO id: *GO:0044416*
Definition: *The elicitation by an organism of the defense response of
the host. The host is defined as the larger of the organisms involved in
a symbiotic interaction. *
which I think might be more in line with a direct annotation to
something like this???
