BitterDB is a database of compounds reported to taste bitter to humans. The compounds can be searched by name, chemical structure, similarity to other bitter compounds, association with a particular human bitter taste receptor, and so on. The database also contains information on mutations in bitter taste receptors that were shown to influence receptor activation by bitter compounds. The aim of BitterDB is to facilitate studying the chemical features associated with bitterness. This collection references receptors.
The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are
3 mappings to external registries for
Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE
bitterdb.rec:1 is used to demonstrate the provides available for
bitterdb.rec. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic
logic beyond string formatting.
