Roles Classification
Biological Role(s): tyrosine kinase inhibitor
Any protein kinase inhibitor that interferes with the action of tyrosine kinase.
EC [DNA topoisomerase (ATP-hydrolysing)] inhibitor
A topoisomerase inhibitor that inhibits DNA topoisomerase (ATP-hydrolysing), EC (also known as topoisomerase II and as DNA gyrase), which catalyses ATP-dependent breakage of both strands of DNA, passage of the unbroken strands through the breaks, and rejoining of the broken strands.
Any compound produced by a plant that happens to have estrogenic activity.
plant metabolite
Any eukaryotic metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in plants, the kingdom that include flowering plants, conifers and other gymnosperms.
Application(s): antineoplastic agent
A substance that inhibits or prevents the proliferation of neoplasms.
