GENE - CHEMICAL INTERACTIONS REPORT

RGD ID: 620410
Species: Rattus norvegicus
RGD Object: Gene
Symbol: Ltb4r
Name: leukotriene B4 receptor
Acc ID: CHEBI:75390
Term: 3-[3-(tert-butylsulfanyl)-1-(4-chlorobenzyl)-5-(propan-2-yl)-1H-indol-2-yl]-2,2-dimethylpropanoic acid
Definition: A member of the class of indoles that is 1H-indole substituted by a isopropyl group at position 5, a tert-butylsulfanediyl group at position 3, a 4-chlorobenzyl group at position 1 and a 2-carboxy-2-methylpropyl group at position 2. It acts as an inhibitor of arachidonate 5-lipoxygenase.
Chemical ID: MESH:C060893
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.
