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): coccidiostat
An agent useful in the treatment or prevention of coccidiosis in man or animals.
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.
ionophore
A compound which can carry specific ions through membranes of cells or organelles.
antibiotic
A substance that is biostatic or biocidal at low concentrations towards bacteria, yeasts, moulds, or other form of life, especially pathogenic or noxious organisms. Although the term was originally restricted to substances produced by microorganisms, its use was later expanded to include derivatives of such substances and it is now commonly used to include entirely synthetic compounds.
