Link

Class: GeneOrGeneProduct

a union of genes or gene products. Frequently an identifier for one will be used as proxy for another

URI: biolink:GeneOrGeneProduct

Identifier prefixes

  • CHEMBL.TARGET
  • IUPHAR.FAMILY

Parents

  • is_a: MacromolecularMachine - A union of gene, gene product, and macromolecular complex. These are the basic units of function in a cell. They either carry out individual biological activities, or they encode molecules which do this.

Children

  • Gene
  • GeneProduct - The functional molecular product of a single gene. Gene products are either proteins or functional RNA molecules

Attributes

Inherited from gene product:

  • id REQ
    • Description: A unique identifier for a thing. Must be either a CURIE shorthand for a URI or a complete URI
    • range: String
    • in subsets: (translator_minimal)
  • name REQ
    • Description: A human-readable name for a thing
    • range: LabelType
    • in subsets: (translator_minimal)

Inherited from genomic entity:

Inherited from macromolecular machine:

  • macromolecular machine➞name REQ
    • Description: genes are typically designated by a short symbol and a full name. We map the symbol to the default display name and use an additional slot for full name
    • range: SymbolType

Inherited from named thing:

  • category 1..*
    • Description: Name of the high level ontology class in which this entity is categorized. Corresponds to the label for the biolink entity type class.
  • In a neo4j database this MAY correspond to the neo4j label tag.
  • In an RDF database it should be a biolink model class URI. This field is multi-valued. It should include values for ancestors of the biolink class; for example, a protein such as Shh would have category values bl:Protein, bl:GeneProduct, bl:MolecularEntity, … In an RDF database, nodes will typically have an rdf:type triples. This can be to the most specific biolink class, or potentially to a class more specific than something in biolink. For example, a sequence feature f may have a rdf:type assertion to a SO class such as TF_binding_site, which is more specific than anything in biolink. Here we would have categories {bl:GenomicEntity, bl:MolecularEntity, bl:NamedThing}

Inherited from thing with taxon:

  • in taxon 0..*
    • Description: connects a thing to a class representing a taxon
    • range: OrganismTaxon
    • in subsets: (translator_minimal)
