Potent mechanism-based inhibition of human CYP2B6 by clopidogrel and ticlopidine.. Tanja Richter; Thomas E Mürdter; Georg Heinkele; Jürgen Pleiss; Stephan Tatzel; Matthias Schwab; Michel Eichelbaum; Ulrich M Zanger (2004) The Journal of pharmacology and experimental therapeutics display abstract
The thienopyridine derivatives ticlopidine and clopidogrel are inhibitors of ADP-induced platelet aggregation. Pharmacological activity of these prodrugs depends on cytochrome P450 (P450)-dependent oxidation to the active antithrombotic agent. In this study, we investigated the interaction potential of clopidogrel and ticlopidine by using human liver microsomes and recombinantly expressed P450 isoforms. Both clopidogrel and ticlopidine inhibited CYP2B6 with highest potency and CYP2C19 with lower potency. Clopidogrel also inhibited CYP2C9, and ticlopidine also inhibited CYP1A2, with lower potency. Inhibition of CYP2B6 was time- and concentration-dependent, and as shown by dialysis experiments, it was irreversible and dependent on NADPH, suggesting a mechanism-based mode of action. Inactivation was of nonpseudo-firstorder type with maximal rates of inactivation (K(inact)) for clopidogrel and ticlopidine in microsomes (recombinant CYP2B6) of 0.35 (1.5 min(-1)) and 0.5 min(-1) (0.8 min(-1)), respectively, and half-maximal inactivator concentrations (KI) were 0.5 microM (1.1 microM) for clopidogrel and 0.2 microM (0.8 microM) for ticlopidine. Inhibition was attenuated by the presence of alternative active site ligands but not by nucleophilic trapping agents or reactive oxygen scavengers, further supporting mechanism-based action. A chemical mechanism is discussed based on the known metabolic activation of clopidogrel and on the finding that hemoprotein integrity of recombinant CYP2B6 was not affected by irreversible inhibition. These results suggest the possibility of drug interactions between thienopyridine derivates and drug substrates of CYP2B6 and CYP2C19.
Selective inhibition of CYP2B6-catalyzed bupropion hydroxylation in human liver microsomes in vitro.. Miia Turpeinen; Riina Nieminen; Tarja Juntunen; Päivi Taavitsainen; Hannu Raunio; Olavi Pelkonen (2004) Drug metabolism and disposition: the biological fate of chemicals display abstract
Some inhibitory agents against CYP2B6 have been reported, but none of these has been extensively characterized or compared with others, as to the potency and selectivity of inhibition toward CYP2B6. The goal of this work was to find a selective and potent chemical in vitro inhibitor toward CYP2B6 using bupropion hydroxylation as a model reaction. At the initial screening of more than 30 substances, ticlopidine, triethylenethiophosphoramide (thioTEPA), metyrapone, xanthate C8, and benzylisothiocyanate displayed IC(50) values of
