The reduction of the triple bond and carbonyl group of an , ketoalkyne, 4-phenyl-3-butyn-2-one (PBYO), by rat liver microsomes and cytosol was investigated. The triple-bond-reduced product trans-4-phenyl-3-buten-2-one (PBO) and the carbonyl-reduced product 4-phenyl-3-butyn-2-ol (PBYOL) were formed when PBYO was incubated with rat liver microsomes in the presence of NADPH. The triple bond of 1-phenyl-1-butyne, deprenyl, ethynylestradiol, ethinamate, and PBYOL, in which the triple bond is not…

In Cell Interactome of Oleocanthal, an Extra Virgin Olive Oil Bioactive Component

A copper-(I)-catalyzed variation of the Huisgen 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition has been applied to lead the in living-cell mass-spectrometry based identification of protein targets of oleocanthal, a



Reductive metabolism In vivo of trans-4-phenyl-3-buten-2-one in rats and dogs.

PBO was mutagenic in the Ames test using Salmonella typhimurium TA 100 when S-9 mix was added, but PBA and PBOL were not.

Stereospecific metabolic reduction of ketones.

This study revealed that the metabolic reduction of each ketone produced the corresponding alcohol as a mixture of its enantiomers, and the mixtures obtained were shown to contain at least 70% of one isomer.

Mechanism-based inactivation of cytochromes P450 2E1 and 2B1 by 5-phenyl-1-pentyne.

A series of acetylenic compounds whose structures were based on "P450 2E1-like" substrates was investigated for their ability to cause inactivation of P450 2E1-dependent p-nitrophenol hydroxylation.

20 b-Hydroxysteroid Dehydrogenase Catalyzes Ketone-Reduction of Acetohexamide , an Oral Antidiabetic Drug , in Liver Microsomes of Adult Male Rats

It is concluded that 20bhydroxysteroid dehydrogenase catalyzes the ketone-reduction of acetohexamide in liver microsomes of adult male rats, and in fish species, 20b-HSD plays an important role in the induction of oocyte maturation.

Biotransformation and detoxification of insecticidal metyrapone analogues by carbonyl reduction in the human liver.

The results demonstrate that the metyrapone analogues are extensively metabolized by human liver microsomes, presumably by 11 beta-HSD, to the less cytotoxic and readily excretable alcohols, indicating potential application of these compounds as insecticides, which would be safer for humans, due to their reductive detoxification.
