The microsomal N-oxidation of phentermine.

The microsomal N-oxidation of phentermine (Ia) to N-hydroxyphentermine (Ib) and to alpha,alpha-dimethyl-alpha-nitroso-beta-phenylethane (Ic was investigated. Maximum activities were obtained with microsomal (9000 g supernatant and microsomes) fractions of rabbit liver in the presence of an NADPH generating system. Incubation of Ia with hepatic washed… CONTINUE READING
