Possible Interaction: Para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) and Sulfamethoxazole

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

SMX inhibits the folic acid pathway through competition with para-aminobenzoic acid (pABA), one of the two substrates of the dihydropteroate synthase (DHPS), a key enzyme in de novo folic acid synthesis.

The anti-Aspergillus effect depended on not TMP but SMX and that was inhibited by p-aminobenzoic acid (PABA).

However, it was recently demonstrated that SMX acts instead by competing with paraaminobenzoic acid ( PABA ) for ligation with H2-HMPt-P2 (Fig. 1) (3, 4).

pABA levels were found to increase upon exposure to SMX following an exponential rise to a maxima regression model in a concentration-dependent manner.
