CRRD ID: 1323510
Species: Mus musculus
CRRD Object: Gene
Symbol: Akr1c21
Name: aldo-keto reductase family 1, member C21
Acc ID: CHEBI:7476
Term: naproxen
Definition: A methoxynaphthalene that is 2-methoxynaphthalene substituted by a carboxy ethyl group at position 6. Naproxen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug commonly used for the reduction of pain, fever, inflammation and stiffness caused by conditions such as osteoarthritis, kidney stones, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, gout, ankylosing spondylitis, menstrual cramps, tendinitis, bursitis, and for the treatment of primary dysmenorrhea.
