not entirely sure what you have in mind - care to rephrase / expand?

do you want to store RDF (eg. using a triplestore), extract RDF or OWL from mySQL or something else entirely (eg. load rdf data from a sparql endpoint into MySQL?)

Also, can we delete the duplicate question?

I deleted the exact dupe.

Where can I store RDF graphs?

In an RDF-store (aka. triple store or quad store). The most common query language for RDF is SPARQL, so they're often called SPARQL stores or SPARQL engines. A list of engines is available here.

Can I store RDF in MySQL for my application?

You can, but depending on the types of queries you want to ask, that's often not a good option. A custom-built RDF store is typically best.

(Looking here, I feel compelled to ask you to please put more effort into your questions in future. You will be rewarded with better answers. Also, please read this.)
