H2O2   Click here for help

GtoPdb Ligand ID: 2448

Synonyms: hydrogen peroxide
Compound class: Inorganic
Comment: At high concentrations H2O2 is toxic and damages cells, but at low levels it modulates some important physiological processes, including signaling in cell proliferation, apoptosis, carbohydrate metabolism, and platelet activation. Catalase is the main H2O2-degrading enzyme in mammalian cells.
