Roles Classification
Biological Role(s): fungal metabolite
Any eukaryotic metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in fungi, the kingdom that includes microorganisms such as the yeasts and moulds.
biological pigment
An endogenous molecular entity that results in a colour of an organism as the consequence of the selective absorption of light.
EC (tyrosinase) inhibitor
Any EC 1.14.18.* (oxidoreductase acting on paired donors, miscellaneous compound as one donor, incorporating 1 atom of oxygen) inhibitor that interferes with the action of tyrosinase (monophenol monooxygenase), EC, an enzyme that catalyses the oxidation of phenols (such as tyrosine) and is widespread in plants and animals.
