People sometimes complain that SBGN does not allow to draw esthetic maps, and use that excuse to build non-compliant ones. Below I assembled a few nice SBGN-compliant maps coming from various papers.
Process Description map of the mammalian cholesterol biosynthesis pathway
Description of Cholesterol metabolism in SBGN PD. Upper figure shows the mevalonate arm while the bottom panel shows the sterol arm. See "A comprehensive machine-readable view of the mammalian cholesterol biosynthesis pathway Biochemical Pharmacology (2013) 86: 56-66doi:10.1016/j.bcp.2013.03.021
Process Description map of a simple gene network
Simple two-gene system that can display different behaviours, such as monostability and bistability or oscillations, depending on the parameter values. See "Quantitative and logic modelling of gene and molecular networks. Nature Reviews Genetics (2015) 16: 146–158" doi:10.1038/nrg3885
Process Description map of amyloid-beta, amyloid protein and alpha-synuclein aggregation
Mechanistic description of aggregation and APP breakdown in ND: Potential future direction. The formation of protein aggregation is represented in three stages, native proteins→misfolded proteins→aggregated proteins for Alzheimer's Disease, Neurodegenerative Diseases in general, and Parkinson's Disease.

Activity Flow map of Amyloid Protein Precursor's processing
The transmembrane protein APP can be processed through four different routes: 1) it may remain at the cell surface; 2) be internalized and recycled or degraded; 3) cleaved via the nonamyloidogenic α-pathway; 4) or cleaved via the amyloidogenic β-pathway. Modeled events are colored in green. The components that are colored red illustrate the gap between the experimental knowledge and the mechanistic understanding.

Regulation of Calcium/Calmodulin Kinase II by Calmodulin
For clarity, only one monomeric subunit is shown. In the actual model, six such subunits form a ring, and autophosphorylation at Thr286 of one subunit is dependent on the neighbouring subunit being open. See Structural analysis and stochastic modelling suggest a mechanism for calmodulin trapping by CaMKII. PLoS ONE (2012), 7(1): e29406" doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0029406
