Characterization of the structural determinants required for potent mechanism-based inhibition of human cytochrome P450 1A1 by cannabidiol.

“We previously demonstrated that cannabidiol (CBD) was a potent mechanism-based inhibitor of human cytochrome P450 1A1 (CYP1A1)…

These results suggest that the methylresorcinol structure in CBD may have structurally important roles in the inactivation of CYP1A1.”

“CYP1A1 regulates breast cancer proliferation and survival. This study supports the notion that CYP1A1 promotes breast cancer proliferation and survival… reduction of CYP1A1 levels is a potential strategy for breast cancer therapeutics.”  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23576571
