Roles Classification
Chemical Role(s): antioxidant
A substance that opposes oxidation or inhibits reactions brought about by dioxygen or peroxides.
Biological Role(s): carcinogenic agent
A role played by a chemical compound which is known to induce a process of carcinogenesis by corrupting normal cellular pathways, leading to the acquistion of tumoral capabilities.
Escherichia coli metabolite
Any bacterial metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in Escherichia coli.
human xenobiotic metabolite
Any human metabolite produced by metabolism of a xenobiotic compound in humans.
mouse metabolite
Any mammalian metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in a mouse (Mus musculus).
An organic molecule or ion (usually a metal ion) that is required by an enzyme for its activity. It may be attached either loosely (coenzyme) or tightly (prosthetic group).
Application(s): skin lightening agent
Any cosmetic used to lighten the colour of skin by reducing the concentration of melanin.
