Roles Classification
Chemical Role(s): oxidising agent
A substance that removes electrons from another reactant in a redox reaction.
explosive
A substance capable of undergoing rapid and highly exothermic decomposition.
Biological Role(s): Escherichia coli metabolite
Any bacterial metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in Escherichia coli.
Saccharomyces cerevisiae metabolite
Any fungal metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in Baker's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae ).
mouse metabolite
Any mammalian metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in a mouse (Mus musculus).
disinfectant
An antimicrobial agent that is applied to non-living objects to destroy harmful microorganisms or to inhibit their activity.
antimicrobial agent
A substance that kills or slows the growth of microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoans.
cofactor
An organic molecule or ion (usually a metal ion) that is required by an enzyme for its activity. It may be attached either loosely (coenzyme) or tightly (prosthetic group).
human xenobiotic metabolite
Any human metabolite produced by metabolism of a xenobiotic compound in humans.
apoptosis inducer
Any substance that induces the process of apoptosis (programmed cell death) in multi-celled organisms.
GABA antagonist
A compound that inhibits the action of gamma-aminobutyric acid.
neurotoxin
A poison that interferes with the functions of the nervous system.
genotoxin
A role played by a chemical compound to induce direct or indirect DNA damage. Such damage can potentially lead to the formation of a malignant tumour, but DNA damage does not lead inevitably to the creation of cancerous cells.
Application(s): biomarker
A substance used as an indicator of a biological state.
GABA antagonist
A compound that inhibits the action of gamma-aminobutyric acid.
