Regulatory Pairs 1

These pairs of nodes represent motifs like A increases B and B decreases A.

Node A Node B
a(CHEBI:"amyloid-beta polypeptide 42") p(HGNC:AK1)

Contradictory Statements 1

These pairs of nodes have a contradiction in their causal relationships, meaning they have more than one of INCREASES, DECREASES, or CAUSES NO CHANGE. This may be due to different experimental conditions, so these statements need to be carefully considered in analyses.

Source Relations Target
a(CHEBI:"amyloid-beta polypeptide 42") decreases, causesNoChange p(ECCODE:"")

Causal Pathologies 4

Pathologies are more dogmatically the result of molecular and physical processes, and do not necessarily make sense as the subject of causal statements.

Source Relation Target
path(MESH:"Alzheimer Disease") decreases p(ECCODE:"", pmod(Ph, Thr, 172))
path(MESH:"Alzheimer Disease") increases p(HGNC:AK1)
path(MESH:"Alzheimer Disease") increases p(HGNC:MAPT, pmod(Ph, Ser, 396))
path(MESH:"Alzheimer Disease") increases p(HGNC:MAPT, pmod(Ph, Ser, 404))
