Omeprazole is an antiulcer drug, an inhibitor of the enzyme H + / K + -adenosine triphosphate (ATP) -phase. Inhibits the activity of H + / K + – adenosine triphosphate (ATP-phase (H + / K + -adenosine triphosphate (ATP) -phase, it is also a “proton pump” or “proton pump”) in the parietal cells of the stomach, thereby blocking the transfer of ions hydrogen and the final stage of the synthesis of hydrochloric acid in the stomach.Omeprazole is a prodrug.In the acidic environment of the tubules of parietal cells, omeprazole is converted to the active metabolite sulfenamide, which inhibits the membrane H + / K + – adenosine triphosphate (ATP) -phase, connecting to it due to the disulfide bridge This explains the high selectivity of the action of omeprazole specifically on parietal cells, where there is a medium for the formation of sulfenamide.Biotransformation of omeprazole into sulfenamide occurs quickly (after 2-4 minutes).Sulfenamide is a cation and is not absorbed.
