Species: Rattus norvegicus
CRRD Object: Gene
Symbol: Timp2
Name: TIMP metallopeptidase inhibitor 2
Acc ID: CHEBI:3011
Term: benazepril
Definition: A benzazepine that is benazeprilat in which the carboxy group of the 2-amino-4-phenylbutanoic acid moiety has been converted to the corresponding ethyl ester. It is used (generally as its hydrochloride salt) as a prodrug for the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor benazeprilat in the treatment of hypertension and heart failure.
