General description

A cell-permeable pyridyl methylsulfinyl benzimidazole compound that acts as selective proton pump inhibitor. Behaves as a prodrug by undergoing an acid-catalyzed rearrangement to a thiol-reactive cationic sulfenamide that inhibits (H+, K+)-ATPase in the gastric milieu. An aryl hydrocarbon-like inducer of cytochrome P450 secretion in human liver.
A cell-permeable, selective proton pump inhibitor.
