Roles Classification
Chemical Role(s): Bronsted acid
A molecular entity capable of donating a hydron to an acceptor (Bronsted base).
(via oxoacid )
Biological Role(s): plant metabolite
Any eukaryotic metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in plants, the kingdom that include flowering plants, conifers and other gymnosperms.
EC 1.11.1.11 (L-ascorbate peroxidase) inhibitors
An EC 1.11.1.* (peroxidases) inhibitor that inhibits the action of L-ascorbate peroxidase (EC 1.11.1.11).
antifungal agent
An antimicrobial agent that destroys fungi by suppressing their ability to grow or reproduce. Antifungal agents differ from industrial fungicides in that they defend against fungi present in human or animal tissues.
plant hormone
A plant growth regulator that modulates the formation of stems, leaves and flowers, as well as the development and ripening of fruit. The term includes endogenous and non-endogenous compounds (e.g. active compounds produced by bacteria on the leaf surface) as well as semi-synthetic and fully synthetic compounds.
Application(s): antiinfective agent
A substance used in the prophylaxis or therapy of infectious diseases.
antifungal agent
An antimicrobial agent that destroys fungi by suppressing their ability to grow or reproduce. Antifungal agents differ from industrial fungicides in that they defend against fungi present in human or animal tissues.
keratolytic drug
A drug that softens, separates, and causes desquamation of the cornified epithelium or horny layer of skin. Keratolytic drugs are used to expose mycelia of infecting fungi or to treat corns, warts, and certain other skin diseases.
