Compound class: Peptide or derivative
Comment: Originally isolated from the skin of Bombina orientalis (oriental fire-bellied toad). As with many natural peptide ligands, there is some ambiguity in the literature and on other resources as to the exact stereochemistry of bombesin. The structure shown here matches those in the PubChem and ChEMBL entries that can be accessed via the Database Links table.
Ligand Activity Visualisation Charts
These are box plot that provide a unique visualisation, summarising all the activity data for a ligand taken from ChEMBL and GtoPdb across multiple targets and species. Click on a plot to see the median, interquartile range, low and high data points. A value of zero indicates that no data are available. A separate chart is created for each target, and where possible the algorithm tries to merge ChEMBL and GtoPdb targets by matching them on name and UniProt accession, for each available species. However, please note that inconsistency in naming of targets may lead to data for the same target being reported across multiple charts.✖
