New study unveils the mechanisms of 3 inhibitors to an important human drug metabolizing enzyme Researchers from the Structural and Molecular Biology research group at UCIBIO-FCT NOVA, have just published a new study describing a new crystal structure of the complex human aldehyde oxidase and its most potent inhibitor raloxifene, widely used in biochemical assays. This structure elucidates the unusual substrate-dependent mechanism of inhibition with potential impact on drug–drug interactions.
