The pre-Wikidata en:Template:GNF Protein box supported external links to the external IUPHAR database of Biological target (Q904407). Currently en:Template:Infobox gene erroneously uses Guide to Pharmacology Ligand ID (P595) which are ligands (Ligand in biochemistry (Q899107)). We therefore need a new property for IUPHAR targets. I started to setup Q55385849, but then noticed that new properties should be proposed before created (sorry about that). Boghog (talk) 10:48, 5 July 2018 (UTC)


  • Support. I agree that this is an important database worth linking properly, and that 'ligands' and 'targets' are (almost) disjoint sets which are worthy of have a separate property. Even if a molecule was both a ligand and a target, distinguish these properties is very reasonable. The name chosen seems appropriate, matching the style of the existing 'ligand' property.
