Roles Classification
Biological Role(s): intercalator
A role played by a chemical agent which exhibits the capability of occupying space between DNA base pairs due to particular properties in size, shape and charge. Intercalation of chemical compounds in DNA helix can result in replication errors (shift, mutation) or DNA damages.
trypanocidal drug
A drug used to treat or prevent infections caused by protozoal organisms belonging to the suborder Trypanosomatida.
Application(s): geroprotector
Any compound that supports healthy aging, slows the biological aging process, or extends lifespan.
