Species: Rattus norvegicus
CRRD Object: Gene
Symbol: Smad6
Name: SMAD family member 6
Acc ID: CHEBI:78420
Term: icariin
Definition: A member of the class of flavonols that is kaempferol which is substituted at position 8 by a 3-methylbut-2-en-1-yl group and in which the hydroxy groups at positions 3, 4', and 7 have been converted to the corresponding 6-deoxy-alpha-L-mannopyranoside, methyl ether, and beta-D-glucopyranoside, respectively. A phoshphodiesterase-5 inhibitor, it is obtained from several species of plants in the genus Epimedium and is thought to be the main active ingredient of the Chinese herbal medicine Herba Epimedii (yinyanghuo).
Chemical ID: MESH:C056599
