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): EC (cyclin-dependent kinase) inhibitor
An EC 2.7.11.* (protein-serine/threonine kinase) inhibitor that interferes with the action of cyclin-dependent kinase (EC
Application(s): dermatologic drug
A drug used to treat or prevent skin disorders or for the routine care of skin.
non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug
An anti-inflammatory drug that is not a steroid. In addition to anti-inflammatory actions, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs have analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions. They act by blocking the synthesis of prostaglandins by inhibiting cyclooxygenase, which converts arachidonic acid to cyclic endoperoxides, precursors of prostaglandins.
