Biological Activity

Diphenyleneiodonium chloride (DPI) is an irreversible inhibitor of iNOS and eNOS with IC50 values of 50 nM and 0.3 µM, respectively. DPI chloride has been used to inhibit other flavoenzymes such as neutrophil NADPH oxidase and to bind strongly to flavoproteins. DPI chloride is thus a powerful and specific inhibitor of several important enzymes, including NADPH cytochrome P450 oxidoreductase, NADPH oxidases and NADPH-ubiquinone oxidoreductase.

Conversion of different model animals based on BSA (Value based on data from FDA Draft Guidelines)
Species Mouse Rat Rabbit Guinea pig Hamster Dog
Weight (kg) 0.02 0.15 1.8 0.4 0.08 10
Body Surface Area (m2) 0.007 0.025 0.15 0.05 0.02 0.5
Km factor 3 6 12 8 5 20
Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by  Animal B Km
Animal A Km

For example, to modify the dose of Compound A used for a mouse (20 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 20 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for Compound A of 10 mg/kg.
