Benzimidazole compounds, such as omeprazole and thiabendazole, are a different type of CYP1A1 inducer from Ah receptor-ligands, such as TCDD (2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin) and 3-methylcholanthrene. In HepG2 cells, the commonly used tyrosine kinase inhibitors, herbimycin-A and a series of tyrphostins, inhibited the induction of CYP1A1 produced by treatment with TCDD. Genistein, another type of tyrosine kinase inhibitor, inhibited the induction of CYP1A1 whether it was produced by… CONTINUE READING
