Metabolic inhibitors and receptor antagonists are indispensable tools for the molecular life scientist. By blocking specific enzymes or receptor-mediated signal transduction cascades, they simplify the analysis of complex cellular processes especially when it is essential to demonstrate that a process of interest is functionally linked to a particular enzyme or receptor. From antibiotics to statins, modern medicine relies on the reliability and ease-of-use of enzyme- and receptor-directed inhibitors and antagonists.The Inhibitor Index is a comprehensive, curated compendium of over 7,800 enzyme inhibitors and receptor antagonists, including many toxins, poisons, and metabolic uncouplers.
"Purich has compiled this handy reference tool listing approximately 7,800 biologically significant molecules that inhibit the action of enzymes or block cellular receptors…The list of targets enables laboratory researchers to choose the most specific and selective inhibitors or blockers for their experiments, and to remain alert to off-target effects. This unique desk reference will be useful for advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and researchers devising laboratory research in cellular biochemistry and new drug development."
