Roles Classification
Biological Role(s): Saccharomyces cerevisiae metabolite
Any fungal metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in Baker's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae ).
water-soluble vitamin

vitamin
Any micronutrient that is an organic compound. The term "vitamines" (from vita + amines) was coined in 1912 by Casimir Funk, who believed that these compounds were amines.
mouse metabolite
Any mammalian metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in a mouse (Mus musculus).
(via carnitine )
human metabolite
Any mammalian metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in humans (Homo sapiens).
(via carnitine )
Application(s): antilipemic drug
A substance used to treat hyperlipidemia (an excess of lipids in the blood).
nutraceutical
A product in capsule, tablet or liquid form that provide essential nutrients, such as a vitamin, an essential mineral, a protein, an herb, or similar nutritional substance.
nootropic agent
Any compound that improves mental functions such as cognition, memory, intelligence, motivation, attention, and concentration.
