MySQL version

We no longer provide an up-to-date MySQL version. We are willing to discuss providing a MySQL version 'on demand', so please get in touch if you'd like to discuss this with us. Email us.
We do provide archived versions created with MySQL 5.6, however, note that this is untested (please send us any feedback). The data are encoded in character set UTF-8; to use it with MySQL you need to enable full UTF-8 4-byte support. Please note that while we hope this information will be useful, the database file is provided "as is" and without any technical support on using PostgreSQL or MySQL.

Archived MySQL versions:

Hosted target and ligand lists

We also host a number of attributed target and ligand lists extracted from the literature as supplementary data or downloaded from databases.

Presentation slides and posters

We also provide a set of generic slides and a poster for public use when producing presentations and teaching materials using the IUPHAR/BPS Guide to PHARMACOLOGY.
