MECHANISM OF ACTION  of  Iritero 100mg (Irinotecan 100mg)

Camptothecin is a derivative of irinotecan which interact particularly with the enzyme topoisomerase I, which relieves torsional strain in DNA by activating reversible single-strand breaks. Irinotecan and its active metabolite SN-38 bind to the topoisomerase I-DNA complex and inhibitsrelocation of these single-strand breaks. The cytotoxicity of Irinotecan is because of double-strand DNA injury produced during DNA combination when multiplication enzymes interact with the ternary complex formed by topoisomerase I, DNA, and either Irinotecan or SN-38. Mammalian cells cannot expertly repair these double strand breaks.
