topGO returns in the result table of enriched GO terms GO term descriptions. But longer description is abbreviated with "..." as in the attached part of topGO result table (first two columns of results). Is there a way how to retrieve directly from topGO the non-truncated term descriptions? (I'd like to use it for construction of word cloud).

  GO.ID                                        Term

10 GO:0015991     ATP hydrolysis coupled proton transport

Perhaps you can use a workaround looking into the GO.db package for the terms of these ids.

Yes, thanks for suggesting the package.
I'm now indeed using  Term() function from GO.db package to retrieve terms for ids...I was just wondering if I'm not missing an argument in topGO which would do it directly.
