Leflunomide | Immunosuppressant

Leflunomide (75706-12-6) pyrimidine biosynthesis inhibitor DMARD (disease-modifying antirheumatic drug)1. Displays immunomodulatory activity inhibiting the mitochondrial enzyme dihydroorotate dehydrogenase (DHODH)2; however the molecule directly responsible for DHODH is actually A77 1726, a metabolite of Leflunomide. Rescues mice from acetaminophen-induced liver injury3.
