An antibiotic (from ancient Greek αντιβιοτικά, antibiotiká), also called an antibacterial, is a type of antimicrobial drug used in the treatment and prevention of bacterial infections.
An antimetabolite is a chemical that inhibits the use of a metabolite, which is another chemical that is part of normal metabolism.
An aroma compound, also known as an odorant, aroma, fragrance, or flavor, is a chemical compound that has a smell or odor.
Biological pigments, also known simply as pigments or biochromes, are substances produced by living organisms that have a color resulting from selective color absorption.
A chemical compound is a chemical substance composed of many identical molecules (or molecular entities) composed of atoms from more than one element held together by chemical bonds.
A chemical reaction is a process that leads to the transformation of one set of chemical substances to another.
A cofactor is a non-protein chemical compound or metallic ion that is required for an enzyme's activity.
Dactinomycin, also known as actinomycin D, is a chemotherapy medication used to treat a number of types of cancer.
In the fields of medicine, biotechnology and pharmacology, drug discovery is the process by which new candidate medications are discovered.
Drug metabolism is the metabolic breakdown of drugs by living organisms, usually through specialized enzymatic systems.
Ecology (from οἶκος, "house", or "environment"; -λογία, "study of") is the branch of biology which studies the interactions among organisms and their environment.
Enzymes are macromolecular biological catalysts.
Ethylene (IUPAC name: ethene) is a hydrocarbon which has the formula or H2C.
Industrial microbiology is a branch of biotechnology that applies microbial sciences to create industrial products in mass quantities.
Metabolic control analysis (MCA) is a mathematical framework for describing metabolic, signaling, and genetic pathways.
In biochemistry, a metabolic pathway is a linked series of chemical reactions occurring within a cell.
Metabolism (from μεταβολή metabolē, "change") is the set of life-sustaining chemical transformations within the cells of organisms.
The metabolome refers to the complete set of small-molecule chemicals found within a biological sample.
Metabolomics is the scientific study of chemical processes involving metabolites, the small molecule intermediates and products of metabolism.
A pheromone (from Ancient Greek φέρω phero "to bear" and hormone, from Ancient Greek ὁρμή "impetus") is a secreted or excreted chemical factor that triggers a social response in members of the same species.
A pigment is a material that changes the color of reflected or transmitted light as the result of wavelength-selective absorption.
Secondary metabolites are organic compounds that are not directly involved in the normal growth, development, or reproduction of an organism.
In medicine, a side effect is an effect, whether therapeutic or adverse, that is secondary to the one intended; although the term is predominantly employed to describe adverse effects, it can also apply to beneficial, but unintended, consequences of the use of a drug.
Within the fields of molecular biology and pharmacology, a small molecule is a low molecular weight (< 900 daltons) organic compound that may regulate a biological process, with a size on the order of 1 nm.
Tryptophan (symbol Trp or W) is an α-amino acid that is used in the biosynthesis of proteins.
