GENE - CHEMICAL INTERACTIONS REPORT

RGD ID: 1309129
Species: Rattus norvegicus
RGD Object: Gene
Symbol: Ndufb8
Name: NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase subunit B8
Acc ID: CHEBI:17549
Term: 5-aminolevulinic acid
Definition: The simplest delta-amino acid in which the hydrogens at the gamma position are replaced by an oxo group. It is metabolised to protoporphyrin IX, a photoactive compound which accumulates in the skin. Used (in the form of the hydrochloride salt)in combination with blue light illumination for the treatment of minimally to moderately thick actinic keratosis of the face or scalp.
Chemical ID: MESH:D000622
