A series of 2-n-alkylbenzimidazoles inhibited cytochrome P-450 dependent aryl hydrocarbon hydroxylase (AHH) and aminopyrine N-demethylase (APDM) activities in phenobarbitone (PB) induced rat liver microsomes. 2-Un-decylbenzimidazole was the most potent compound in the series, having I50 values of 1.8 X 10(-5) and 1.5 X 10(-5) M against AHH and APDM… CONTINUE READING
