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


Shufeng Zhou
March 9, 2016

Cytochromes are proteins that catalyze electron transfer reactions of well-known metabolic pathways and are classified in various superfamilies. The CYP, or P450, superfamily accounts for 90% of the oxidative metabolism of clinical drugs. One member of this superfamily, P450 2D6 (or CYP2D6), singleh...
