Definition:Any process in which a cell, a substance, or a cellular entity, such as a protein complex or organelle, is transported, tethered to or otherwise maintained in a specific location. In the case of substances, localization may also be achieved via selective degradation.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: establishment and maintenance of localization;   establishment and maintenance of position;   localisation
 narrow_synonym: establishment and maintenance of cellular component location;   establishment and maintenance of substance location;   establishment and maintenance of substrate location
 related_synonym: single organism localization
