The metabolism of clocoumarol, 3-[1-[P-(2-chlorethyl)phenyl]butyl]-4-hydroxycoumarin, by rat liver microsomes was investigated. The chemical structure of the main metabolite is 6-[1-hydroxy-2-oxo-3-[p-(2-chloro

Microbial models of mammalian metabolism: production of 3'-hydroxywarfarin, a new metabolite of warfarin using Cunninghamella elegans.
Warfarin, an anticoagulant and "metabolic probe" for cytochrome P-450 isozyme multiplicity, was metabolized by the fungus Cunninghamella elegans (ATCC 36112) to yield the previously unreportedExpand

1. The coumarin anticoagulants warfarin and phenprocoumon were metabolized by Aspergillus niger via oxidative ring cleavage to yield the corresponding alpha-diketone metabolites. 2. StructuralExpand
Microbial models of mammalian metabolism: conversion of warfarin to 4'-hydroxywarfarin using Cunninghamella bainieri.
The absence of a primary isotope effect, migration and retention of deuterium in the phenolic product, and inhibition of the hydroxylation by carbon monoxide are consistent with a cytochrome P-450-mediated hydroxyation involving the classic NIH shift (arene oxide) pathway. Expand

Emphasis is laid on the potential for selected microorganisms to mimic all patterns of mammalian biotransformations and to provide preparative methods for structural identification and toxicological and pharmacological studies of drug metabolites. Expand
Chapter 21. Drug Metabolism
This chapter selectively highlights the recent literature on drug metabolism and suggested that imiprimine might also undergo N-dealkylation in human intestine, and raised the general question as to the relative roles of the small intestine and the liver in the metabolism of drugs. Expand
Use of microorganisms for the study of drug metabolism: An update
It is apparent from the numerous examples cited here and in the previous review of this area that microorganisms are a reliable, reproducible alternative to small animals as predictive models in drug metabolism studies. Expand
