Pharmabase targets the action and use of pharmacological compounds in modifying protein function, while revealing molecular relationships and linking out to related databases and sites.
This NIH:NCRR-funded database has been developed by the BioCurrents Research Center as a research tool, a resource for students and an ongoing interactive forum on the use of pharmacological compounds in cellular research. It has several navigational routes, including membrane transport, which also illustrates the diversity of mechanisms that are covered. Users have access to detailed compound records with interactive features, and a form to send comments to the editor. Investigators are encouraged to alert the editors to mistakes, omissions or new compound information available from their reading and research.
The BRC Pharmabase contains records that are guidelines only and are not comprehensive. All biological systems differ. For disposal and handling safety please see suppliers' guidelines. The database is held on the MBL server. Users should back up critical information.
