  1. This table shows how relations are handled during conversion to BioPAX or SBML. The conversion depends on the subtype of each relation. For each subtype, the corresponding BioPAX element, as well as terms from different ontologies are specified. When converting to BioPAX, all terms are annotated as an instance of InteractionVocabulary, whereas an SBML transition has a field for the SBO term and other terms are added as controlled vocabularies on the transition. Please note that some BioPAX elements are subject to certain conditions and others need to be replaced by more generic classes in BioPAX Level 2, due to differences in both releases. Please see the KEGG to BioPAX section for more details.
