irinotecan is an approved drug (FDA (1996), EMA (2016))
Compound class: Synthetic organic
Comment: Irinotecan is a semisynthetic analogue of the natural plant alkaloid camptothecin (PubChem CID 24360) which functions as a DNA replication inhibitor by binding to topoisomerase I/DNA complexes . Camptothecin was first isolated from the bark and stem of Camptotheca acuminata, the Chinsese happy tree.
The PubChem CID linked here is the same isomer as recorded in irinotecan's INN record.
Ligand Activity Visualisation Charts
These are box plot that provide a unique visualisation, summarising all the activity data for a ligand taken from ChEMBL and GtoPdb across multiple targets and species. Click on a plot to see the median, interquartile range, low and high data points. A value of zero indicates that no data are available. A separate chart is created for each target, and where possible the algorithm tries to merge ChEMBL and GtoPdb targets by matching them on name and UniProt accession, for each available species. However, please note that inconsistency in naming of targets may lead to data for the same target being reported across multiple charts.✖
