GENE - CHEMICAL INTERACTIONS REPORT

CRRD ID: 2414
Species: Rattus norvegicus
CRRD Object: Gene
Symbol: Cryab
Name: crystallin, alpha B
Acc ID: CHEBI:17303
Term: morphine
Definition: A morphinane alkaloid that is a highly potent opiate analgesic psychoactive drug. Morphine acts directly on the central nervous system (CNS) to relieve pain but has a high potential for addiction, with tolerance and both physical and psychological dependence developing rapidly. Morphine is the most abundant opiate found in Papaver somniferum (the opium poppy).
Chemical ID: MESH:D009020
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.
