Roles Classification
Chemical Role(s): polar solvent
A solvent that is composed of polar molecules. Polar solvents can dissolve ionic compounds or ionisable covalent compounds.
Biological Role(s): neurotoxin
A poison that interferes with the functions of the nervous system.
human metabolite
Any mammalian metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in humans (Homo sapiens).
Saccharomyces cerevisiae metabolite
Any fungal metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in Baker's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae ).
teratogenic agent
A role played by a chemical compound in biological systems with adverse consequences in embryo developments, leading to birth defects, embryo death or altered development, growth retardation and functional defect.
NMDA receptor antagonist
Any substance that inhibits the action of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors. They tend to induce a state known as dissociative anesthesia, marked by catalepsy, amnesia, and analgesia, while side effects can include hallucinations, nightmares, and confusion. Due to their psychotomimetic effects, many NMDA receptor antagonists are used as recreational drugs.
protein kinase C agonist
An agonist that selectively binds to and activates a protein kinase C receptor
disinfectant
A substance applied to non-living objects to destroy harmful microorganisms or to inhibit their activity.
Application(s): antiseptic drug
A substance used locally on humans and other animals to destroy harmful microorganisms or to inhibit their activity (cf. disinfectants, which destroy microorganisms found on non-living objects, and antibiotics, which can be transported through the lymphatic system to destroy bacteria within the body).
polar solvent
A solvent that is composed of polar molecules. Polar solvents can dissolve ionic compounds or ionisable covalent compounds.
central nervous system depressant
A loosely defined group of drugs that tend to reduce the activity of the central nervous system.
disinfectant
A substance applied to non-living objects to destroy harmful microorganisms or to inhibit their activity.
