Identifier prefixes



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


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

Mixin for

  • Gene (mixin) - A region (or regions) that includes all of the sequence elements necessary to encode a functional transcript. A gene locus may include regulatory regions, transcribed regions and/or other functional sequence regions.
