Metabolite of Species Details
Mus musculus (NCBI:txid10090) See: MetaboLights Study
Roles Classification
Chemical Role(s): surfactant
A substance which lowers the surface tension of the medium in which it is dissolved, and/or the interfacial tension with other phases, and, accordingly, is positively adsorbed at the liquid/vapour and/or at other interfaces.
Biological Role(s): mouse metabolite
Any mammalian metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in a mouse (Mus musculus).
Any intermediate or product resulting from metabolism. The term 'metabolite' subsumes the classes commonly known as primary and secondary metabolites.
