This function will return a list of subunits which are participants of your supplied complex.

rba_reactome_complex_subunits(complex_id, exclude_structures = FALSE, ...)



Reactome stable Identifier of the complex.


(logical) Should the contained complexes and entity sets be excluded from the results? (default = FALSE)


rbioapi option(s). See rba_options's arguments manual for more information on available options.


Data frame which each row is a subunit of your supplied complex and the columns are pertinent information of that subunit.


Subunits will be returned recursively; Which means that if a subunit was itself a complex, subunit of that complex will be also returned in the results.
