Inactivation of cytochrome P450 2B1 by benzyl isothiocyanate, a chemopreventative agent from cruciferous vegetables.


A series of arylalkyl isothiocyanates were evaluated for their ability to inactivate purified cytochrome P450 2B1 in a reconstituted system. Benzyl isothiocyanate (BITC) and phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC) occur naturally in several cruciferous vegetables, and the inhibition of cytochrome P450 (P450) enzymes has been implicated in their chemopreventative… (More)
