Possible Interaction: Para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) and Aminosalicylic Acid

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Durham and Hubbard (1959) suggested that p-aminosalicylic acid influenced the assimilation of p-aminobenzoic acid by competing with the substrate for the specific transport mechanism(s) in the cell membrane thereby controlling oxida-
More recently, Hedgecock (1958) demonstrated that p-aminobenzoic acid competitively antagonized the inhibitory effect of p-aminosalicylic acid on the growth of Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
Results obtained from additional investigations indicated that the utilization of p-aminobenzoic acid as a sole source of energy for aerobic growth is also competitively inhibited by paminosalicylic acid (Durham, 1957).

It is known that intrinsic metabolites, such as, para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) and methionine, antagonize PAS and structurally related anti-folate drugs.

Based on the observation that exogenously supplied p-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) can antagonize the action of antifolates that interact with dihydropteroate synthase (DHPS), such as sulfonamides and p-aminosalicylic acid (PAS), we hypothesized that bacterial PABA biosynthesis contributes to intrinsic antifolate resistance.
Herein, we demonstrate that disruption of PABA biosynthesis potentiates the anti-tubercular action of DHPS inhibitors and PAS by up to 1000 fold.

Utilization of p-aminobenzoic acid as an oxidizable substrate by a Flavobacterium4 is competitively inhibited by p-aminosalicylic acid5 , and it has been suggested that p-aminosalicylic acid competes with the substrate for the specific transport mechanism(s)6.
