Oxidative metabolism of cinnarizine (CZ) and its fluorine derivative flunarizine (FZ), both of which are selective calcium entry blockers, was examined in human liver microsomes. The ring-hydroxylations and the N-desalkylations constituted primary metabolic pathways in microsomal metabolism of CZ and FZ. Among these pathways, the ring-hydroxylase (p-hydroxylation) activities at the cinnamyl moiety of both drugs were highly correlated with debrisoquine 4-hydroxylase activity and CYP2D6 content… 
Cytochrome P450 Enzymes
TLDR
The characterization, function, and regulation of CYP enzymes that are relevant to the understanding of how CYP enzyme can metabolize a large variety of drugs are focused on.
Isolation and characterization of metabolites of centpropazine in rat liver, intestine, and red blood cell homogenates.
TLDR
The potential sites for metabolism of centpropazine (CPZ) (an antidepressant) were evaluated in male Sprague-Dawley rats and the in vitro metabolic pathways for CPZ were proposed.
Cytochromes P450: A Structure-Based Summary of Biotransformations Using Representative Substrates
TLDR
A structure-based outline of CYP-catalyzed biotransformations of selected substrates, representing diverse structural classes of chemicals, ranging from drugs to toxicants is presented.
Polymorphism of Human Cytochrome P450 2D6 and Its Clinical Significance
TLDR
There is a considerable variability in the CYP2D6 allele distribution among different ethnic groups, resulting in variable percentages of PMs, IMs, EMs and UMs in a given population and the number of alleles is still growing.
Polymorphism of Human Cytochrome P450 2D6 and Its Clinical Significance
TLDR
CYP2D6 phenotyping and genotyping appear to be useful in predicting steady-state concentrations of some classical antipsychotic drugs, but their usefulness in predicting clinical effects must be explored.
