  • AN OVERVIEW ON THE ALLELIC VARIANT OF CYP2D6 GENOTYPE. Mathew, Shiju // International Journal of Pharma & Bio Sciences;Oct-Dec2010, Vol. 1 Issue 4, pB114 

    The paper will give an overview on the allelic variant of CYP2D6 genotype. The gene CYP2D6*3 encodes a member of the cytochrome P450 superfamily of enzymes. The cytochrome P450 proteins are monooxygenases which catalyze many reactions involved in drug metabolism and synthesis of cholesterol,...

    Cytochromes P450 represent a numerous family of heme-containing enzymes belonging to the group of monooxygenases. In prokaryotes, cytochromes P450 usually perform a plastic function, whereas in eukaryotes their functions are very diverse. Mammalian cytochromes P450 are components of membranes...

    The cytochrome P450 (P450) enzymes are mainly localized to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), where they function within catalytic complexes metabolizing xenobiotics and some endogenous substrates. However, certain members of families 1–3 were also found in other subcellular compartments,...

    We reported previously that various naphthoquinone derivatives inhibited cytochrome P450-dependent monooxygenase of liver and placenta microsomes [Muto, N. et al. (1987) Biochem. Biophys. Res. Commun. 146, 487–494]. To understand the complex inhibitory behaviors that were observed, it is...

    Overproduction of microsomal cytochrome P450Alkl (P450Alkl) of Candida maltosa in Saccharomyces cerevisiae resulted in an extensive proliferation of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and induction of Kar2p and Pdilp. The irel null mutation severely suppressed ER proliferation, reduced the level of...

    CYP2B6 has not been as fully characterized at the molecular level as other members of the human cytochrome P450 family. As more widely used in vitro probes for characterizing the involvement of this enzyme in the metabolism of xenobiotics have become available, the number of molecules identified...
