Text search supports boolean logic (AND, OR, NOT
operations). To match a string exactly, place quotes around your search term
(for example "acetic acid" will only match the acetic followed by acid, it
will not match acetic or acid alone). In addition, text search supports
parenthetical groupings, and prepended +plus and -minus operators.
PathBank text query also supports a high-level search interface allowing you to narrow your search to specific fields. To use this interface, simply enter the field name followed by a colon and your query term. For example, to search for pathways which involve the metabolite sarcosine you would search for compound_name:Sarcosine.
The following fields are searchable using this method:
|kegg_id||KEGG Pathway Map ID|
|ec_number||Enzyme Commission Number|
|compound_name||Drug or Metabolite Name|
