All reactants are visible in the property view when selecting an EC number in the pathway view.
This information is also displayed as a tool tip when hovering over the EC number.

Upon clicking an item in the pathway graph additional information about that element will
be displayed in the Property Viewer of the side panel.
The text contents view of a pathway contains a textual summary of the pathways including
