By Jeffrey P. Jones (auth.), Adnan Elfarra (eds.)

I have regularly been drawn to chemistry and biology. My undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral trainings in pharmacy, medicinal chemistry and pharmacology, respectively, have reinforced this curiosity and led me to gain that major advances in medication have often been learned as a result of examine on the chem- try–biology interface. i hope that this complete quantity on contemporary advances in bioactivation learn will stimulate pharmacologists, medicinal chemists, phar- ceutical scientists, and graduate scholars in those fields and similar parts to think about and use bioactivation learn after they discover and chart new frontiers in drug layout and drug improvement and once they examine how you can decrease the unwanted side effects of present medicines through making prodrugs. As for the toxicologists and environmental healthiness scientists, i am hoping this quantity can help them generate the data had to comprehend larger mechanisms of toxicity to enhance human threat tests and intervention equipment after occupational or environmental publicity to numerous detrimental chemical substances.

Enzyme Inactivation Studies In some instances, P450-mediated oxidative bioactivation of drugs to reactive intermediates leads to irreversible inactivation of the P450 enzyme by the reactive species prior to its release from the active site (Murray 1997). Because metabolic activation precludes enzyme inactivation, these drugs fall into the category of mechanism-based inactivators. The mechanism-based inactivation of P450 enzymes may result from irreversible alkylation of an active-site amino acid or the heme prosthetic group or a combination of both.
