RGD ID: 2898
Species: Rattus norvegicus
RGD Object: Gene
Symbol: Il4
Name: interleukin 4
Acc ID: CHEBI:15864
Term: luteolin
Definition: A tetrahydroxyflavone in which the four hydroxy groups are located at positions 3', 4' 5 and 7. It is thought to play an important role in the human body as an antioxidant, a free radical scavenger, an inflammatory agent and an immune system modulator as well as being active against several cancers.
Chemical ID: MESH:D047311
