Cytochrome P450 2D6: Structure, Function, Regulation and Polymorphism

Cytochromes are proteins that catalyze electron move reactions of recognized metabolic pathways and are categorized in numerous superfamilies. The CYP, or P450, superfamily bills for ninety% of the oxidative metabolism of scientific medications. One member of this superfamily, P450 2D6 (or CYP2D6), singlehandedly metabolizes approximately 25% of all medicinal drugs within the human liver.

Example text

This increase in IFN production in turn results in induction of a large number of genes collectively known as interferon-stimulated genes (ISGs), and it is through the action of these genes that IFN exerts its antiviral effect. It is this antiviral property of IFN in part that is exploited in the current therapy for chronic hepatitis C. While IFN has multiple immunomodulatory functions, the induction of ISGs is thought to be fundamental to controlling HCV infection. The ISGs responsible for the anti-HCV effect are not well understood, although the roles of a number of ISGs are emerging as well as anti-HCV effectors.
