GENE - CHEMICAL INTERACTIONS REPORT

CRRD ID: 619573
Species: Mus musculus
CRRD Object: Gene
Symbol: Slc22a6
Name: solute carrier family 22 (organic anion transporter), member 6
Acc ID: CHEBI:2825
Term: aristolochic acid
Definition: A monocarboxylic acid that is phenanthrene-1-carboxylic acid that is substituted by a methylenedioxy group at the 3,4 positions, by a methoxy group at position 8, and by a nitro group at position 10. It is the most abundant of the aristolochic acids and is found in almost all Aristolochia (birthworts or pipevines) species. It has been tried in a number of treatments for inflammatory disorders, mainly in Chinese and folk medicine. However, there is concern over their use as aristolochic acid is both carcinogenic and nephrotoxic.
Chemical ID: MESH:C000228
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.
