Bioactivation of the anticancer agent CPT-11 to SN-38 by human hepatic microsomal carboxylesterases and the in vitro assessment of potential drug interactions.
Human hepatic microsomes were used to investigate the carboxylesterase-mediated bioactivation of CPT-11 to the active metabolite, SN-38. SN-38 formation velocity was determined by HPLC over aExpand

Double-Catalyzed Base-Acid Synthesis of Chestnut Shell Pigment Resin Cross-Linked with Formaldehyde
An approach to synthesize melanin-formaldehyde resin has been developed. The pigment extracted from chestnut shells, a bio-waste from food industry, was employed as the melanin. The synthesisExpand

Involvement of CYP2D6, CYP3A4, and other cytochrome P-450 isozymes in N-dealkylation reactions.
Metabolic N-dealkylation is a commonly observed biotransformation with tertiary and secondary amine drugs and related N-alkylated amides, but surprisingly little is known about the cytochrome P-450Expand
