Possible Interaction: Folic Acid Antagonists and Homocysteine

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

This study points out for the first time the importance of pretreatment tHcy levels in predicting severe toxicity associated with an antifolate and sets the stage for a prospective clinical intervention to protect patients from pemetrexed-induced severe toxicity and possibly improve the drug's efficacy.

However, combined culture of the NMDA antagonist , MK-801, with homocysteine did enhance intracellular Ca(2+) levels.

L-homocysteine (50 μM) induced inward currents that were completely blocked by the selective antagonist of NMDA receptors, AP-5.

When cells were treated with homocysteine- or glutamate in the presence of MK-801, an antagonist of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor, the cell death was inhibited significantly.

One potentially important consequence of this putative mechanism is that homocysteine may interact synergistically with other NMDAR antagonists to enhance its effect on development.

Under control conditions, responses to glutamate resembled responses to quisqualate, and were relatively insensitive to CNQX, 3-((+/-)-2-carboxypiperazin-4-yl)-propyl-l-phosphonic acid and 2-amino-5-phosphonovalerate, while responses to homocysteic acid resembled responses to NMDA and were blocked by these antagonists.

The antagonists non-selectively reduced the excitatory responses evoked by 5-HT, 5-CT, alpha-Me-5-HT, D, L-homocysteic acid (DLH) and noradrenaline (NA).

We also show that known NMDA antagonists , including Mg++, D-aminophosphonopentanoate and certain anesthetics, analgesics, and sedative hypnotics block the neurotoxic actions of L-HCA in direct proportion to their efficacy in blocking NMDA neurotoxicity.
