RGD ID: 2769
Species: Rattus norvegicus
RGD Object: Gene
Symbol: Gucy1b1
Name: guanylate cyclase 1 soluble subunit beta 1
Acc ID: CHEBI:28787
Term: nitroglycerin
Definition: A nitroglycerol that is glycerol in which the hydrogen atoms of all three hydroxy groups are replaced by nitro groups. It acts as a prodrug, releasing nitric oxide to open blood vessels and so alleviate heart pain.
Chemical ID: MESH:D005996
