Biological Activity for Liarozole dihydrochloride

Liarozole dihydrochloride is a cytochrome P450 inhibitor. Inhibits several cytochrome P450 enzymes including aromatase (CYP19) and retinoic acid 4-hydroxylase (CYP26). Blocks retinoic acid metabolism (retinoic acid metabolism blocking agent, RAMBA). Displays antitumor activity against androgen-dependent and independent rat prostate carcinomas.
