Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in BRENDA Tissue Ontology should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
0000590   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from BRENDA Tissue Ontology should match this regular expression:

Example CURIE
MIRIAM Namespace Embedded in LUI
The legacy MIRIAM standard for generating CURIEs with this resource annotates the namespaceEmbeddedInLUI as true. This means that you may see local unique identifiers that include a redundant prefix and delimiter (also known as a banana) and therefore look like a CURIE. For BRENDA Tissue Ontology, the banana looks like BTO:. Therefore, you may see local unique identifiers for this resource that look like BTO:0000590 (instead of the canonical form 0000590) and CURIEs for this resource that look like BTO:BTO:0000590 (instead of the canonical form BTO:0000590). The Bioregistry will automatically strip off the banana when standardizing local unique identifiers and CURIEs.

RDF Information

When using this resource in RDF, the following URI format should be used:$1


A provider turns a local unique identifiers from a resource into a URI. Many providers are also resolvable as URLs (i.e., they can be used in a web browser).

The local unique identifier 0000590 is used to demonstrate the providers available for BRENDA Tissue Ontology. A guide for curating additional providers can be found here.
