GENE - CHEMICAL INTERACTIONS REPORT

RGD ID: 621392
Species: Rattus norvegicus
RGD Object: Gene
Symbol: Ccn2
Name: cellular communication network factor 2
Acc ID: CHEBI:8887
Term: rofecoxib
Definition: A butenolide that is furan-2(5H)-one substituted by a phenyl group at position 3 and by a p-(methylsulfonyl)phenyl group at position 4. A selective cyclooxygenase 2 inhibitor, it was used from 1999 to 2004 for the treatment of ostoarthritis, but was withdrawn following concerns about an associated increased risk of heart attack and stroke.
Chemical ID: MESH:C116926
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.
