Abstract

Over the past two decades a number of antifungal imidazole derivatives have been approved for use in agricultural. The purpose of this study was to characterize the interaction of a model antifungal imidazole compound with a cytochrome P450 isozyme in a species of fish. Clotrimazole inhibited rainbow trout (Oncorhyncus mykiss) hepatic CYP1A-catalyzed ethoxyresorufin O-deethylase (EROD) activity in vivo and in vitro. Although clotrimazole inhibited EROD activity in vivo, it did not effect CYP1A mRNA levels. Addition of clotrimazole to microsomes produced a type II binding spectrum and clotrimazole was determined to be a noncompetitive mixed-type inhibitor of EROD activity with an IC50 of 190 nM. Since antifungal imidazole compounds may be co-applied with other pesticides, inhibition of cytochrome P450 activity by antifungal imidazole compounds may lead to unexpected toxicological interactions.
