Biological Activity

Description Itraconazole (R 51211) is a relatively potent inhibitor of CYP3A4 with IC50 of 6.1 nM, used as a triazole antifungal agent. Itraconazole is a potent antagonist of the Hedgehog (Hh) signaling pathway. Itraconazole suppresses the growth of glioblastoma through induction of autophagy.
CYP3A4 [6]
(human liver microsomes)
6.1 nM
In vitro

Itraconazole is metabolized into hydroxy-itraconazole (OH-ITZ), a known in vivo metabolite of ITZ, and two new metabolites: keto-itraconazole (keto-ITZ) and N-desalkyl-itraconazole (ND-ITZ). Itraconazole is a substrate for CYP3A in vitro and to characterize the metabolites generated. Itraconazole exhibits an unbound Km of 3.9 nM for CYP3A. Itraconazole metabolites are as potent as or more potent CYP3A4 inhibitors than ITZ itself. [1] Itraconazole appears to act on the essential Hh pathway component Smoothened (SMO) by a mechanism distinct from that of cyclopamine and other known SMO antagonists, and prevents the ciliary accumulation of SMO normally caused by Hh stimulation. [2] Itraconazole is active against 60 clinical isolates of Aspergillus spp. with geometric mean (GM) MICs of 0.25 mg/mL. [3] Itraconazole acts primarily by impairing the synthesis of ergosterol, resulting in a defective fungal cell membrane with altered permeability and function. Itraconazole is effective for a wide variety of mycotic infections and some fungal meningeal infections. [4] Itraconazole has an affinity for mammalian cytochrome P-450 enzymes as well as for fungal P-450-dependent enzyme, and thus has the potential for clinically important interactions (e.g., astemizole, terfenadine, rifampin, oral contraceptives, H2 receptor antagonists, warfarin, cyclosporine).

PubMed: 28103683     

HUVEC were treated with drugs as indicated for 1 h, and AMPK/mTOR activity was monitored by phosphorylation of their respective substrates. Unlike itraconazole, the NPC phenotype-inducing compounds U18666A and imipramine inhibited mTOR without affecting AMPK activity. 

GLI1 / GLI2 / p-AKT1 / AKT1 / Cyclin D1 ; 

PubMed: 27388747     

Pathway components of Hh and AKT signaling are decreased in ASZ001 cells treated with itraconazole. ASZ001 cells were treated with varying concentrations of itraconazole for 24 hours. The levels of GLI1, GLI2, p-AKT1, and cyclin D1 were assessed by Western blotting.

U87 or C6 cells were treated with indicated concentrations of itraconazole for 36 h. Cell viability was measured by the MTT assay. The data were representative of 5 independent experiments. 

In vivo Itraconazole, like other Hh pathway antagonists, can suppress Hh pathway activity and the growth of medulloblastoma in a mouse allograft model. [2]

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Question 1:

    We are finding the best vehicle to administer Itraconazole to mice. We want a mild vehicle (unlike DMSO) which resembles water, PBS, saline (for i.p/ injection) or methyl cellulose (for oral).

  • Answer:

    We are not able to dissolve S2476 Itraconazole clearly without DMSO. For oral gavage, this compound can be dissolved in 1% CMC Na at 20mg/ml as a homogeneous suspension.
