Possible Interaction: Acetylcysteine and Beta-Lapachone

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Nuclear magnetic resonance analyses indicated that prevention of β-lapachone derivative cytotoxicity was the result of direct modification of these derivatives by N-acetyl-l-cysteine , preventing their conversion to β-lapachone.

N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC), a thiol antioxidant, inhibited the apoptosis in DU145 cells after 12 h exposure to beta-lapachone.
Molecular pharmacology  •  2001  |  View Paper
Because reducing agents (dithiothreitol and N-acetylcysteine ) reversed the effect of beta-lapachone , it suggests the role of a critical sulfhydryl group.

Again, the beta-lapachone-induced monocytic differentiation was suppressed by NAC.
