RGD ID: 620331
Species: Rattus norvegicus
RGD Object: Gene
Symbol: Pafah1b1
Name: platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase 1b, regulatory subunit 1
Acc ID: CHEBI:140618
Term: castor oil
Definition: A mixture of triglycerides obtained by pressing the seeds of the castor oil plant, Ricinus communis. The major component is triricinolein. Typical fatty acid composition on hydrolysis is 87% ricinoleic acid, 7% oleic acid, 3% linoleic acid, 2% palmitic acid, 1% stearic acid, and trace amounts of dihydroxystearic acid.
Chemical ID: MESH:D002368
Note: Use of the qualifier "multiple interactions" designates that the annotated interaction is comprised of a complex set of reactions and/or regulatory events, possibly involving additional chemicals and/or gene products.
