Should GO:0009597 be used for bacteriophage receptors?

The definition for 'detection of virus' is: "The series of events in which a stimulus from a virus is received and converted into a molecular signal." [GOC:hb]. I think this term is used to annotate gene products that are involved in a host cell's response to viral infection and so shouldn't be used to annotate bacteriophage receptors. GO:0001618 ! viral receptor activity would be a better term. Dsiegele 18:01, 9 July 2012 (CDT)
