(+)-N-3-Benzyl-nirvanol and (-)-N-3-benzyl-phenobarbital: new potent and selective in vitro inhibitors of CYP2C19.
Highly potent and selective CYP2C19 inhibitors are not currently available. In the present study, N-3-benzyl derivatives of nirvanol and phenobarbital were synthesized, their respective (+)- andExpand

Expression, Purification, Biochemical Characterization, and Comparative Function of Human Cytochrome P450 2D6.1, 2D6.2, 2D6.10, and 2D6.17 Allelic Isoforms
Polymorphism at the cytochrome P450 2D6 (CYP2D6) locus is one of the most widely known causes of pharmacogenetic variability in humans. Our goal is to investigate the intrinsic enzymatic differencesExpand

Reduced (+/-)-3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine ("Ecstasy") metabolism with cytochrome P450 2D6 inhibitors and pharmacogenetic variants in vitro.
"Ecstasy" [(+/-)-3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine or MDMA] is a CNS stimulant, whose use is increasing despite evidence of long-term neurotoxicity. In vitro, the majority of MDMA is demethylenatedExpand

Flunitrazepam metabolism by cytochrome P450S 2C19 and 3A4.
We have identified CYP2C19 and CYP3A4 as the principal cytochrome P450s involved in the metabolism of flunitrazepam to its major metabolites desmethylflunitrazepam and 3-hydroxyflunitrazepam. HumanExpand

Genetic association between sensitivity to warfarin and expression of CYP2C9*3.
Cytochrome P4502C9 (CYP2C9) is largely responsible for terminating the anticoagulant effect of racemic warfarin via hydroxylation of the pharmacologically more potent S-enantiomer to inactiveExpand
