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): antifungal agent
An antimicrobial agent that destroys fungi by suppressing their ability to grow or reproduce.
plant metabolite
Any eukaryotic metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in plants, the kingdom that include flowering plants, conifers and other gymnosperms.
A semiochemical used in olfactory communication between organisms of the same species eliciting a change in sexual or social behaviour.
EC (tyrosinase) inhibitor
Any EC 1.14.18.* (oxidoreductase acting on paired donors, miscellaneous compound as one donor, incorporating 1 atom of oxygen) inhibitor that interferes with the action of tyrosinase (monophenol monooxygenase), EC, an enzyme that catalyses the oxidation of phenols (such as tyrosine) and is widespread in plants and animals.
Application(s): melanin synthesis inhibitor
A depigmentation agent which inhibits the synthesis of melanin.
