GENE - CHEMICAL INTERACTIONS REPORT

CRRD ID: 620819
Species: Rattus norvegicus
CRRD Object: Gene
Symbol: Eif2b1
Name: eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2B subunit alpha
Acc ID: CHEBI:34687
Term: dibutyl phthalate
Definition: A phthalate ester that is the diester obtained by the formal condensation of the carboxy groups of phthalic acid with two molecules of butan-1-ol. Although used extensively as a plasticiser, it is a ubiquitous environmental contaminant that poses a risk to humans.
Chemical ID: MESH:D003993
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.
