Roles Classification
Chemical Role(s): environmental contaminant
Any minor or unwanted substance introduced into the environment that can have undesired effects.
Biological Role(s): carcinogenic agent
A role played by a chemical compound which is known to induce a process of carcinogenesis by corrupting normal cellular pathways, leading to the acquistion of tumoral capabilities.
teratogenic agent
A role played by a chemical compound in biological systems with adverse consequences in embryo developments, leading to birth defects, embryo death or altered development, growth retardation and functional defect.
antibacterial agent
A substance that kills or slows the growth of bacteria.
antifungal drug
Any antifungal agent used to prevent or treat fungal infections in humans or animals.
Application(s): fluorochrome
A fluorescent dye used to stain biological specimens.
histological dye
A dye used in microscopic or electron microscopic examination of cells and tissues to give contrast and to highlight particular features of interest, such as nuclei and cytoplasm.
antifungal drug
Any antifungal agent used to prevent or treat fungal infections in humans or animals.
