Chemical Information
FooDB Namealpha-Spinasterol
Descriptionalpha-Spinasterol, also known as α-spinasterol or bessisterol, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as stigmastanes and derivatives. These are sterol lipids with a structure based on the stigmastane skeleton, which consists of a cholestane moiety bearing an ethyl group at the carbon atom C24. Thus, alpha-spinasterol is considered to be a sterol lipid molecule. alpha-Spinasterol is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral.

anti pyretic35493 A drug that prevents or reduces fever by lowering the body temperature from a raised state. An antipyretic will not affect the normal body temperature if one does not have fever. Antipyretics cause the hypothalamus to override an interleukin-induced increase in temperature. The body will then work to lower the temperature and the result is a reduction in fever.DUKE
