Properties of data record: title, date of submission to database, submitted by, curated by, edited by, newer version of...
Properties of "concept" (or rater physical entity): molecular weight, molecular structure, sequence, translated from mRNA, part of protein complex...

Can a database record have a molecular weight or be part of a protein complex? Can a protein be curated and added to a database?
