Species: Rattus norvegicus
RGD Object: Gene
Symbol: Mapt
Name: microtubule-associated protein tau
Acc ID: CHEBI:16796
Term: melatonin
Definition: A member of the class of acetamides that is acetamide in which one of the hydrogens attached to the nitrogen atom is replaced by a 2-(5-methoxy-1H-indol-3-yl)ethyl group. It is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland in humans.
Chemical ID: MESH:D008550
