|Abstract||The N4-hydroxylation of sulfamethoxazole (SMX) to its hydroxylamine (SMX-HA) metabolite is the first step in the formation of reactive metabolites responsible for mediating hypersensitivity reactions associated with this compound. In rat hepatic microsomes, the NADPH-dependent oxidation of SMX to SMX-HA was increased 3-fold by pretreatment of rats with phenobarbital. Other cytochrome P450 (CYP) inducers were ineffective. The constitutive and induced SMX N-hydroxylation activities were inhibited by tolbutamide, and induction of SMX-HA activity paralleled the induction of progesterone 21-hydroxylase activity, a marker for CYP2C6. SMX N-hydroxylation in phenobarbital-treated rat hepatic microsomes was inhibited 70% by anti-CYP2C6 antisera. Thus, the N4-hydroxylation of SMX by rat hepatic microsomes was mediated by members of the CYP2C subfamily, probably CYP2C6. In a panel of human microsomes, SMX-HA formation correlated with tolbutamide hydroxylase activity (r = 0.75; p = 0.01); CYP2C9 content (r = 0.79; p or = 1 microM inhibited the reduction of SMX-HA in human hepatic microsomes by 45%, whereas sulfaphenazole had no effect.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)|
