#84 NTR: sensitive to bismuth/lead


sensitive to bismuth (bismuth nitrate ( Bi(NO3)2 ) was tested)

sensitive to lead (lead nitrate ( Bi(NO3)2 ) was tested)

A question: I am assuming that in a compound, we annotate to the 'active' element, not the delivery mechanism of the element to the media (i.e Calcium instead of Calcium chloride, but if it's an ionized form of an element, then we annotate to the ion form (eg Selenite ion instead of Selenium)?

    Yup, annotate to the 'active' substance.

    For metals, the vast majority have cations as the biologically relevant form For the sensitivity/resistance terms, I've used the element name in the term name, but pointed to the ChEBI term for the ion (or for any ion). I've also included synonyms using '.. to X ion'.

    Selenite ion is the only compound ion we've got a phenotype term for so far (the vanadate term is 'sensitive to trisodium vanadate'; I'll just leave it alone if you don't really need it).

    Arrgh. I can't find anything for bismuth nitrate or bismuth ions in ChEBI. For the moment I've pointed to "bismuth atom" (CHEBI:33301), tho it's not ideal.
