MetaCyc Reactions Class: Simple Reactions

An instance of this class should be a single reaction involving only a small number of defined participants, in contrast to large complicated processes that can be better classified under the Complex-Processes class (e.g., transcription or translation). Simple-Reactions should be considered indivisible at the current level of abstraction, but it is possible to define a decomposition of a simple reaction into a lower level set of sub-reactions, that exist at a different level of abstraction. Simple-Reactions are therefore simple in comparison to Complex-Processes, not because they cannot be decomposed.
