Reactions forming a pathway can be rewritten by making explicit the different molecular components involved in them. A molecular component represents a biological entity (e.g. a protein) in all its states (free, bound, degraded, etc.). In this paper we show the application of a component identification algorithm to a number of real-world models to experimentally validate the approach. Components identification allows subpathways to be computed to better understand the pathway functioning.
