Other pharmacological relationships (e.g., agonist of (P3772), antagonist of (P3773), positive allosteric modulator of (P3778)) have already been assigned Wikidata properties and there is ongoing work to incorporate more relationships into the OBO Relation Ontology (, Inverse agonism is another mechanism of action that's a bit less common than the others, but is very interesting. We want to upload a lot of relations inferred from ChEBI based on manual curation from and this relation will support encoding some of those.  – The preceding unsigned comment was added by Cthoyt (talk • contribs)..


  • @Cthoyt: The description should define the term inverse agonist instead of just repeating it. ChristianKl❫ 18:14, 20 June 2020 (UTC)
