Characteristics

Omeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor, belonging to the substituted benzimidazole class. Omeprazole inhibits the H+/K+-ATPase enzyme system at the secretory surface of the parietal cell. Omeprazole irreversibly binds to the gastric parietal cell H+/K+-ATPase enzyme that pumps hydrogen ions into the stomach lumen in exchange for potassium ions.
