The Reactome molecule Event page
provides a detailed description of each
molecule that participates in a Reactome reaction. This description

of human Cdc2 is shown below (the "participates in process"

Here, one can further click to access the 'Reference Entity' page for this molecule. This provides (a)details as to the various synonyms by which the molecule is known, (b) external links to established reference databases with information on this entity, and, (c) if it is a "small molecule", a chemical fingerprint of the molecule. The chemical fingerprint describes the type and number of chemical groups that this molecule contains. An example of a fingerprint for ATP is shown below:
Every small molecule in Reactome has a verified structure file (in MOL format) that is 'fingerprinted' by a set of molecular groups. Clicking on any of the group names in the above Chemical fingerprint generates a list of all small molecules in Reactome that contain this substructure. The set of chemical groups used in this fingerprinting procedure will expand in parallel with our process annotations to maintain an adequate descriptive level of those structures involved in our reactions. Complexes are also described on separate pages.
