Abstract

Dihydrocapsaicin (2) is a noncompetitive inhibitor of cytochrome P450IIE1. This was demonstrated by studying the inhibition of p-nitrophenol oxidation. The covalent binding of 2 to cytochrome P450IIE1 was examined by incubating tritiated 2 with rat liver microsomes and gel electrophoresis of the resulting bound cytochrome P450 isozymes. Autoradiograms of these gels displayed a single band at approximately 48 kDa. The mechanism whereby 2 became covalently bonded to cytochrome P450IIE1 was explored by studying the oxidation of 2 by electrochemical, chemical, and enzymatic methods. Oxidation of 2 by all methods generally resulted in the formation of the 5,5′-dimer of 2, 4, which likely forms by dimerization of the phenoxy radical 7. It is suggested that 2 is oxidized to 7 by cytochrome P450IIE1 and 7 then covalently bonds to cytochrome P450IIE1 thereby inactivating it.
