Abstract In this work, we report the studies of drug metabolism by xanthine oxidase XOD with electrochemical techniques. Firstly, a pair of stable, well-defined and quasi-reversible oxidation-reduction peaks is obtained with the formal potential at −413.1 mV vs. SCE after embedding XOD in salmon sperm DNA membrane on the surface of pyrolytic graphite electrode. Then, a new steady peak can be observed at −730 mV vs. SCE upon the addition of 6-mercaptopurine 6-MP to the electrochemical system, indicating the metabolism of 6-MP by XOD. Furthermore, the chronoamperometric response shows that the current of the catalytic peak located at −730 mV increases with addition of 6-MP in a concentration-dependent manner, and the increase of the chronoamperometric current can be inhibited by an XOD inhibitor, quercetin. Therefore, our results prove that XOD-DNA modified electrode can be efficiently used to study the metabolism of 6-MP, which may provide a convenient approach for in vitro studies on enzyme-catalyzed drug metabolism.
