CRRD ID: 1307751
Species: Rattus norvegicus
CRRD Object: Gene
Symbol: Srebf2
Name: sterol regulatory element binding transcription factor 2
Acc ID: CHEBI:9150
Term: simvastatin
Definition: A member of the class of hexahydronaphthalenes that is lovastatin in which the 2-methylbutyrate ester moiety has been replaced by a 2,2-dimethylbutyrate ester group. It is used as a cholesterol-lowering and anti-cardiovascular disease drug.
Chemical ID: MESH:D019821
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.
