ADH1A question

GeneCards is getting the Gene Ontology annotations for human genes from 
the information provided by the GOA project at UniProt see:

The AmiGO tool uses information provided by the many members of the 
Gene Ontology Consortium.  The GeneCards site is a massive collection 
of information on human genes and they are putting a lot of disparate 
information together.  If you look on the GeneCards page for 
"UniProt/Swiss-Prot" you'll find the protein sequence entry that was 
annotated by the GOA project.  In your example, its ADHA_HUMAN 
(accession number P07327).  You'll find the annotations in AmiGO if you 
search for ADHA_HUMAN using the Gene Symbol/Name search.


P.S.  By the way the copy of genecards you are using is 15 months old.  
I doesn't appear to be an official mirror site for GeneCards.  You 
might like to use another site, one that at least has the latest copy 
of the GeneCards information.  You can find GeneCards mirrors at:
