GENE - CHEMICAL INTERACTIONS REPORT

RGD ID: 620800
Species: Rattus norvegicus
RGD Object: Gene
Symbol: Bnip3
Name: BCL2 interacting protein 3
Acc ID: CHEBI:16716
Term: benzene
Definition: A six-carbon aromatic annulene in which each carbon atom donates one of its two 2p electrons into a delocalised pi system. A toxic, flammable liquid byproduct of coal distillation, it is used as an industrial solvent. Benzene is a carcinogen that also damages bone marrow and the central nervous system.
Chemical ID: MESH:D001554
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.
