Pharmacodynamics of  Mequinol

Mequinol is in fact considered a melanocytotoxic chemical which when oxidized in melanocytes results in the formation of toxic entities like quinonesSuch cytotoxic compounds subsequently have the potential to damage and destroy pigment cells, therefore causing skin depigmentation [3]. In response, skin cells are naturally capable of protecting themselves against such cytotoxic agents with the help of endogenous intracellular glutathione and the detoxification action of glutathione S-transferase on the cytotoxic compounds . Regardless, it is consequently by way of this seemingly negative and damaging pharmacodynamic profile by which the mechanism of action of mequinol is sometimes described
