Roles Classification
Biological Role(s): EC 3.4.24.83 (anthrax lethal factor endopeptidase) inhibitor
An EC 3.4.24.* (metalloendopeptidase) inhibitor that interferes with the action of anthrax lethal factor endopeptidase (EC 3.4.24.83).
EC 1.1.1.34/EC 1.1.1.88 (hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA reductase) inhibitor
Any EC 1.1.1.* (oxidoreductase acting on donor CH-OH group, NAD+ or NADP+ acceptor) inhibitor that inhibits HMG-CoA reductases. Hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA reductase inhibitors have been shown to lower directly cholesterol synthesis. The Enzyme Commission designation is EC 1.1.1.34 for the NADPH-dependent enzyme and EC 1.1.1.88 for an NADH-dependent enzyme.
