metoprolol is an approved drug (FDA (1978))
Compound class: Synthetic organic
Comment: The approved drug metoprolol is a racemic mixture of two enantiomers. The structure shown here does not specify stereochemistry and represents the mixture. The two enantiomers are represented by PubChem entries CID 157717 and CID 157716.
Ligand Activity Visualisation Charts
These are box plot that provide a unique visualisation, summarising all the activity data for a ligand taken from ChEMBL and GtoPdb across multiple targets and species. Click on a plot to see the median, interquartile range, low and high data points. A value of zero indicates that no data are available. A separate chart is created for each target, and where possible the algorithm tries to merge ChEMBL and GtoPdb targets by matching them on name and UniProt accession, for each available species. However, please note that inconsistency in naming of targets may lead to data for the same target being reported across multiple charts.✖
