DNA haplotype-dependent differences in the amino acid sequence of debrisoquine 4-hydroxylase (CYP2D6): evidence for two major allozymes in extensive metabolisers

The molecular basis for DNA haplotype-dependent debrisoquine 4-hydroxylase (CYP2D6) expression was explored by sequencing all of the nine exons of the CYP2D6 gene. Two distinct exon sequence frameworks of the CYP2D6 gene were found, each associated with specific BamHI-defined DNA haplotypes of the CYP2D cluster. They corresponded to Arg296/Cys296 and Ser486… (More)
