Possible Interaction: Clofibrate and Tryptophan



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Clofibrate was inhibitory to tryptophan metabolism as a whole, affecting the glutarate pathway more (decreased to 37% of control) than the kynureninase flux (decreased to 64% of control).

When clofibrate was injected in vivo so that plasma total tryptophan concentration was decreased by 45% but neither free tryptophan nor competing amino acid concentrations were altered, then uptake from a bolus of the rat's own plasma was unchanged.
