Roles Classification
Biological Role(s): EC [DNA topoisomerase (ATP-hydrolysing)] inhibitor
A topoisomerase inhibitor that inhibits DNA topoisomerase (ATP-hydrolysing), EC (topoisomerase II), which catalyses ATP-dependent breakage of both strands of DNA, passage of the unbroken strands through the breaks, and rejoining of the broken strands.
apoptosis inducer
Any substance that induces the process of apoptosis (programmed cell death) in multi-celled organisms.
Any intermediate or product resulting from metabolism. The term 'metabolite' subsumes the classes commonly known as primary and secondary metabolites.
Application(s): antineoplastic agent
A substance that inhibits or prevents the proliferation of neoplasms.
hepatoprotective agent
Any compound that is able to prevent damage to the liver.
