MetaCore is based on a proprietary manually curated database of 1) transcription factors, receptors, ligands, kinases, drugs, metabolites, and other molecular classes, 2) species-specific directional interactions between proteins, proteins and DNA or RNA, drugs and their targets, and other bioactive molecules, 3) signaling and metabolic pathways represented on maps and networks, and 4) ontologies for diseases and processes with hierarchical or graphic output.
