Definitions for "Inhibitors"
Agents that block or suppress the activity of enzymes such as proteases.
Also called nucleoside or nucleotide analogs (nucleotide analogs are phosphorylated nucleoside analogs). These anti-HIV drugs include AZT, 3TC, d4T, ddC, ddI, abacavir, and tenofovir (a nucleotide analog). These agents block reverse transcription by acting as chain terminators.
Agents that reduce or prevent substrate damage.
Chemial compounds, part of the coolant's additive package that are provided to prevent corrosion of the cooling system's metal components. Inhibitors can be either inorganic compounds as in traditional technology or they can be organic compounds such as carboxylates as found in Extended Life Coolant (OAT coolant.)
Additions to the electrolyte that preferentially migrate to the anode or cathode, cause polarization, and reduce the rate of corrosion.
Antibodies produced to eliminate VWF or other clotting factor proteins, seen as foreign by the body's immune system.
Antibodies in the blood that react to infused factor and hinder clotting.
Residues in milk from antibiotics given to cows to treat bacterial infections. Milk from treated cows cannot be sold for a specific period until traces of the medicine have been metabolized or excreted by the cow.
a basic residue containing amidino or guanidino groups, which can bind to Asp
A substance that diminishes the rate of a chemical reaction. The process is called inhibition. Inhibitors are sometimes called negative catalysts but since the action of an inhibitor is fundamentally different from that of a catalyst this terminology is discouraged. In contrast to a catalyst, an inhibitor may be consumed in the course of a reaction. ... See also effector. [IUPAC Compendium] [Go to source
(also called stabilizers) Chemicals that are added to unstable substances to prevent violent reaction.
