Roles Classification
Chemical Role(s): ligand
Any molecule or ion capable of binding to a central metal atom to form coordination complexes.
Biological Role(s): human metabolite
Any mammalian metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in humans (Homo sapiens).
Any intermediate or product resulting from metabolism. The term 'metabolite' subsumes the classes commonly known as primary and secondary metabolites.
An endogenous compound that is used to transmit information across the synapse between a neuron and another cell.
P450 inhibitor
An enzyme inhibitor that interferes with the activity of cytochrome P450 involved in catalysis of organic substances.
EC (cytochrome c oxidase) inhibitor
An EC 1.9.3.* (oxidoreductase acting on donor heme group, oxygen as acceptor) inhibitor that interferes with the action of cytochrome c oxidase (EC
signalling molecule
A molecular messenger in which the molecule is specifically involved in transmitting information between cells. Such molecules are released from the cell sending the signal, cross over the gap between cells by diffusion, and interact with specific receptors in another cell, triggering a response in that cell by activating a series of enzyme controlled reactions which lead to changes inside the cell.
mouse metabolite
Any mammalian metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in a mouse (Mus musculus).
A poison that interferes with the functions of the nervous system.
mitochondrial respiratory-chain inhibitor

Application(s): vasodilator agent
A drug used to cause dilation of the blood vessels.
A substance used as an indicator of a biological state.
A role played by a molecular entity used to study the microscopic environment.
