CYP (Cytochrome P450)

In drug discovery, the effects of compounds on the metabolic reactions specific for various human drug-metabolizing enzymes have been routinely examined. Cytochrome P450 inhibition assay screening test is useful in the investigation of clinical drug-drug interactions (DDI) studies for new drugs


CYP Substrate


Testosterone, a well known steroid hormone, is used in Cytochrome P450 (CYP) metabolism inhibition and CYP induction drug interaction studies. The metabolism of testosterone to its hydroxy form, 6β-hydroxytestosterone (6β-OH-T) is a commonly used assay to evaluate human CYP3A enzyme activities.

Reaction in vivo

Conversion of testosterone to 6β-hydroxytestosterone reaction is used to determine enzyme activity of CYP3A4.



It is used as a substrate for pharmacokinetics experiments to add to a cell together with a candidate compound that can be a drug and confirm whether it affects drug metabolism.
