Biological Activity

Description Zafirlukast (ICI-204219) is an oral leukotriene receptor antagonist (LTRA), used to prevent asthma symptoms.
leukotriene receptor [1]
In vitro

Zafirlukast is similar to 3-methylindole because it contains an N-methylindole moiety that has a 3-alkyl substituent on the indole ring. Zafirlukast readily forms (10% conversion in 60 min) a GSH adduct with molecular mass of 880 Da upon incubation with horseradish peroxidase. Zafirlukast produces time-, concentration-, and NADP(H)-dependent inactivation of CYP3A4. Zafirlukast is shown to inhibit CYP3A enzyme activity in vitro (nonpreincubation inhibition) with a Ki of 2 μM in one report, but higher values have been published, and our KI for the inactivation process is 13.4 μM. Zafirlukast has high plasma protein binding (>99%), which would lower the free-drug concentration. Zafirlukast undergoes two successive one-electron oxidations to afford a highly electrophilic α,β-unsaturated iminium species, which reacts spontaneously with GSH to yield the observed adduct. [1]

In vivo Zafirlukast is a potent and selective cysteinyl leukotriene receptor antagonist which is used mainly in the prophylaxis of bronchial asthma. Zafirlukast in a dose of 80 mg/kg orally produces a significant decrease in tissue malondialdehyde, myeloperoxidase, and an increase in both reduced glutathione and catalase levels, while there is no significant changes with the rectal route.

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
