DrugBank Vocabulary

$179 / year

DrugBank is a richly annotated resource that combines drug data with drug target and drug action information. Released in 2006, DrugBank has been widely used to facilitate in silico drug target discovery, drug design, drug docking or screening, drug metabolism prediction, drug interaction prediction and general pharmaceutical education. “Drug Bank Vocabulary” contains information on DrugBank identifiers, names, and synonyms to permit easy linking and integration into any type of project.

Complexity

The DrugBank database is a unique bioinformatics and cheminformatics resource that combines detailed drug (i.e. chemical, pharmacological and pharmaceutical) data with comprehensive drug target (i.e. sequence, structure, and pathway) information. The database contains 9591 drug entries including 2037 FDA-approved small molecule drugs, 241 FDA-approved biotech (protein/peptide) drugs, 96 nutraceuticals and over 6000 experimental drugs. Additionally, 4661 non-redundant protein (i.e. drug target/enzyme/transporter/carrier) sequences are linked to these drug entries.

DrugBank is widely used by the drug industry, medicinal chemists, pharmacists, physicians, students and the general public. Its extensive drug and drug-target data has enabled the discovery and repurposing of a number of existing drugs to treat rare and newly identified illnesses.

Drug_Bank_IdUnique Drug Bank ID consisting of a 2 letter prefix (DB) and a 5 number suffix. Identifier of the chemical in the DrugBank database ('|'-delimited list). The DrugBank database is a unique bioinformatics and cheminformatics resource that combines detailed drug (i.e. chemical, pharmacological and pharmaceutical) data with comprehensive drug target (i.e. sequence, structure, and pathway) information.stringrequired : 1
Accession_NumberAccession number consists of the 4 letter prefix and a 5 number suffix. Each Accession number is unique to the drug's generic name. The 4 letter suffix (APRD, EXPT, BIOD, NUTR) indicates the type of drug (APRD=approved small molecule drug, EXPT=experimental drug, BIOD=biotech drug, NUTR=nutraceutical or natural product).
