Abstract Disulfiram (DSF) has found extensive use in the aversion therapy treatment of recovering alcoholics. It is known that DSF or a metabolite irreversibly inhibits aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH). However, the actual mechanism of inhibition is still not known. In this work we describe the in vitro interactions of DSF, as well as a principal metabolite S-methyl-N,N-diethylthiocarbamoyl sulfoxide (MeDTC-SO), with both recombinant rat liver mitochondrial monomeric ALDH (rmALDH) and homotetrameric rmALDH. We show that DSF directly inhibits rmALDH (IC(50)=36.4 microM) by inducing the formation of an intramolecular disulfide bond. We also demonstrate by HPLC-MS analysis of a Glu-C digest of DSF-treated rmALDH that the intramolecular disulfide bridge formed involves two of the three cysteines located at the active site of the enzyme. Using a combination of HPLC-MS and HPLC-MS/MS, we further show that the electrophilic metabolite MeDTC-SO also inhibits rmALDH (IC(50)=4.62 microM). We isolate and identify a carbamoylated peptide at Cys(302) with the sequence FNQGQC(301)C(302)C(303). Hence we show that MeDTC-SO exhibits its inhibitory effect by covalently modifying the -SH side-chain of Cys(302), present at the active site rmALDH. Finally we show using SEC-MS that both DSF and MeDTC-SO do not prevent formation of the homotetramer of rmALDH, but inhibit the enzyme by acting directly at the active site of specific monomers of rmALDH.
