Mode of action of Rabeprazole?

Rabeprazole is a selective and irreversible proton pump inhibitor. Rabeprazole suppresses gastric acid secretion by specific inhibition of the hydrogen-potassium adenosine triphosphatase (H+, K+-ATPase) enzyme system found at the secretory surface of parietal cells. It inhibits the final transport of hydrogen ions (via exchange with potassium ions) into the gastric lumen. Since the H+, K +-ATPase enzyme system is regarded as the acid (proton) pump of the gastric mucosa, rabeprazole is known as a gastric acid pump inhibitor. Rabeprazole does not have anticholinergic or histamine H2-receptor antagonist properties
