Roles Classification
Chemical Role(s): environmental contaminant
Any minor or unwanted substance introduced into the environment that can have undesired effects.
Bronsted base
A molecular entity capable of accepting a hydron from a donor (Bronsted acid).
(via organic amino compound )
Biological Role(s): EC (prolyl oligopeptidase) inhibitor
Any EC 3.4.21.* (serine endopeptidase) inhibitor that interferes with the action of prolyl oligopeptidase (EC
non-narcotic analgesic
A drug that has principally analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory actions. Non-narcotic analgesics do not bind to opioid receptors.
calcium channel blocker
One of a class of drugs that acts by selective inhibition of calcium influx through cell membranes or on the release and binding of calcium in intracellular pools.
excitatory amino acid antagonist
Any substance which inhibits the action of receptors for excitatory amino acids.
A xenobiotic (Greek, xenos "foreign"; bios "life") is a compound that is foreign to a living organism. Principal xenobiotics include: drugs, carcinogens and various compounds that have been introduced into the environment by artificial means.
Application(s): anticonvulsant
A drug used to prevent seizures or reduce their severity.
antimanic drug
Antimanic drugs are agents used to treat bipolar disorders or mania associated with other affective disorders.
Antidepressants are mood-stimulating drugs used primarily in the treatment of affective disorders and related conditions.
non-narcotic analgesic
A drug that has principally analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory actions. Non-narcotic analgesics do not bind to opioid receptors.
Any compound that supports healthy aging, slows the biological aging process, or extends lifespan.
