Small Molecule Report


Small Molecule Reports contain information about non-proteinaceous molecules such as ions, metabolites, co-enzymes, and secondary messengers that play regulatory roles in signaling pathways described in BKL.

Each Small Molecule Report is similarly organized and comprises different blocks for properties curated and references cited in the Report. Other BKL Reports mentioned in the Small Molecule Report are hyperlinked to the corresponding Reports. For example, reactions that utilize the molecule described in the Small Molecule Report are listed, with links to their corresponding Reaction Reports.

Small Molecule Reports may be accessed through the Small Molecule advanced search or through hyperlinks on BKL reports.

Please note: The population of the Small Molecule Report is dependent upon whether the associated reactions are present within the licensed subscription meaning that BKL subscribers who have licensed only part of the BKL will see subsets of information, depending on the subscription

Anatomy of a Small Molecule Report

The general structure of a Small Molecule Report is described below.

  • Access help by clicking the help menu  help  and clicking the Drug report help link.

  • Navigate to the desired section of the report by opening the table of contents  toc

Points of navigation within the report are indicated by the following visual cues.

  • Links to additional reports within the BKL are presented as regular text links.

  • Links to external resources are indicated by a blue bubble, such as the PubMedID link shown here:  external link  .

  • Links to display additional text within the page are indicated by a yellow bubble, such as the show abstract link shown here:  expand content  .
  • Links providing an option to send data to another tool within the BKL are indicated by a gray bubble, such as the Pathfinder link shown here:  download content  .

Small Molecule Information Describes the characteristics of the small molecule. help
Identifies pathways and chains the small molecule functions in, with hyperlinks to the corresponding Pathway/Chain Reports. Also hyperlinks to the BKL Pathfinder view of the pathway or chain, through the icon. In cases where a manually-drawn pathway map is available for the associated pathway, hyperlinks are provided to the map. Click here for details about pathways and chains.
Molecular events
Identifies reactions the small molecule is involved in, with hyperlinks to the corresponding Reaction Reports. Click here for detailed information about Reactions.

Identifiers Displays internal and external identifiers the small molecule is associated with.  
BKL Accessions
Lists the primary and secondary identifiers for the small molecule of the page.
External Identifiers
Displays hyperlinks to corresponding entries in external databases.

References Displays list of references cited in the Small Molecule Report.  
This block gives the full citations, with titles, that correspond to the PubMed identifiers displayed. When a PubMed identifier is not available, the Medline identifier is displayed. When neither a PubMed nor Medline identifier is available, a BIOBASE-specific number is assigned preceded by a "P". Nearly all of the reference numbers are hyperlinked to the Entrez database where the abstracts may be read. All references cited in the annotations and properties section are listed, and other references known to contain information about the protein may also be listed. The first five references are shown, click [ more ...] to view all references. View abstracts via webservice, by additionally clicking the [+] which appears.
