 Synonyms & Historicals
Germine Acetates .
Acetates, Germine .
Germine 3 monoacetate .
Germine-3-monoacetate .
Germine derivatives acetylated on any one or more of the hydroxy groups. These compounds are present in many polyester alkaloids which occur in Veratrum and Zygadenus species. They are used as antihypertensive agents, and in some cases, exhibit curare-like activity. .
Cytotoxins .
Cytolysins .
Cytotoxic Agents .
Substances that are toxic to cells; they may be involved in immunity or may be contained in venoms. These are distinguished from CYTOSTATIC AGENTS in degree of effect. Some of them are used as CYTOTOXIC ANTIBIOTICS. The mechanism of action of many of these are as ALKYLATING AGENTS or MITOSIS MODULATORS. .
Naphthols .
Hydroxynaphthalenes .
Naphthalene derivatives carrying one or more hydroxyl (-OH) groups at any ring position. They are often used in dyes and pigments, as antioxidants for rubber, fats, and oils, as insecticides, in pharmaceuticals, and in numerous other applications. .
Androstanols .
Hydroxyandrostanes .
Androstanes and androstane derivatives which are substituted in any position with one or more hydroxyl groups. .
Benzaldehydes .
Compounds that consist of a benzene ring with a formyl group. They occur naturally in the seeds of many fruits and are used as FLAVORING AGENTS and fragrances, as well as precursors in pharmaceutical and plastics manufacturing. .
Androstenols .
Hydroxyandrostenes .
Unsaturated androstanes which are substituted with one or more hydroxyl groups in any position in the ring system. .
Chloromercurinitrophenols .
Mercuriphenols substituted with one or more chlorine atoms and one or more nitro groups. Some of these are sulfhydryl reagents which act as chromophoric probes in enzymes and other proteins. .
Cholestanols .
Alcohols, Bile .
Bile Alcohols .
Hydroxycholestanes .
Cholestanes substituted in any position with one or more hydroxy groups. They are found in feces and bile. In contrast to bile acids and salts, they are not reabsorbed. .
Sialoglycoproteins .
Polysialoglycoproteins .
Sialoglycopeptides .
Sialoproteins .
Glycoproteins which contain sialic acid as one of their carbohydrates. They are often found on or in the cell or tissue membranes and participate in a variety of biological activities. .
Antiparkinson Agents .
Antiparkinson Drugs .
Antiparkinsonian Agents .
Antiparkinsonians .
Agents, Antiparkinson .
Agents, Antiparkinsonian .
Drugs, Antiparkinson .
Agents used in the treatment of Parkinson's disease. The most commonly used drugs act on the dopaminergic system in the striatum and basal ganglia or are centrally acting muscarinic antagonists. .
