I gave the following neuroscience URI examples in my biordf talk at 
C-SHALS yesterday.

http://dbpedia.org/resource/Dopamine_receptor
http://purl.org/ycmi/senselab/neuron_ontology.owl#Dopaminergic_Receptor
http://purl.org/nif/ontology/NIF-Molecule.owl#nifext_5832

I pointed out that the last one might be a possible solution. There 
might be hope. :-)
