Enzyme Inhibition

Our CYP and UGT inhibition services are conducted with Corning UltraPool® HLM 150 pooled human liver microsomes, drug probe substrates and validated LC/MS/MS methods. Options include direct and time-dependent inhibition studies with flexible endpoints. Kinetic results reported include IC50, IC50 shift (dilution and non-dilution methodology), as well as KI and kinact. Assays are also available using hepatocytes or recombinant enzyme study models.

Enzyme Induction

For 20+ years, we have provided regulatory agency-driven cytochrome P450 (CYP) induction services using primary hepatocytes. Testing options include enzyme activity and mRNA endpoints for CYP1A2, CYP2B6, CYP3A4, CYP2C8, CYP2C9, CYP2C19, UGTs, and more. Data may include EC50, Emax or relative induction scores (RIS). Rapid and conventional assay protocols are available which can be modified to your needs.

Reaction Phenotyping

Using our well-known Corning Supersomes™ enzymes, human liver microsomes, or hepatocytes, we will evaluate enzyme-mediated pathways of elimination for your compound. Enzyme-selective chemical inhibitors and/or immune inhibitory antibodies can be used to confirm pathways and evaluate whether your compound could be a “victim” of drug-drug interactions. Available enzymes for evaluation: CYP, UGT, CES, SULT, and AO.
