  1. what must be present for a reductive reaction to occur in a P450 catalyzed reaction?
    halogen (eg: halothane)
  2. What type of reaction is this:

    SH + O2 + NADPH + H+ Image Upload 1 SOH + H2O+NADP+
    oxidative reaction
  3. terminal oxidase of the MFO (mixed-function oxidase) electron-transfer system
  4. what CYP uses as a source of reducing equivalents
  5. type of protein CYP is
  6. axial ligand typical of CYP450, CPO, and NOS enzymes
    iron (III) protoporphyrin IX with a cysteinate
  7. active oxygen species of CYP450, CPO, and NOS enzymes
    oxoiron(IV) porphyrin cation radical 

    (often called Compound I)
  8. why is cysteine preferred over histidine in heme enzymes?
    cysteine is a better electron donor
  9. what allows CYP450 to accommodate diverse substrates?
    large presence of numerous Image Upload 2-helices (more translational motion than Image Upload 3-sheets)
  10. Type I spectrum: max & min wavelengths
    • max: 390nm
    • min: 420nm
  11. substrate (S) binds to active site of E close to the heme group, displacing H2O from distal axial position of heme iron
    Type I
  12. Type II spectrum: max & min wavelengths
    • max: 440nm
    • min: 410nm
  13. substrate (S) binds directly to the heme iron
    Type II
  14. - induced by change in electronic state of active site
    - reduces ferric heme to ferrous heme
    transfer of first e- from NAD(P)H via CYP450 reductase
  15. where 2nd e- transferred in P450 cycle is from (2)
    • P450 reductase
    • cytochrome b5
  16. result of transfer of e- via the electron-transport system
    reduction of dioxygen adduct to negatively charge peroxo group (loss of 1 of 2 O's)
  17. how P450 Compound 1 is formed
    • (Step 5 of cycle)
    • peroxo group is protonated twice by water or surrounding amino-acid side chains, releasing 1 H2O & forming a reactive species (P450 Compound 1)
  18. what happens to bond length during transition from ferric superoxide (O2-) to ferric peroxide (O22-) P450
    increased bond length (1.33 -> 1.49 Angstroms)
  19. main evolutionary goal of biotransformation
    increase the rate of excretion of xenobiotics or drugs
  20. 5 characteristics of Phase I products (result of drug metabolism)
    • 1) inactivation (eg: oxidation of EtOH)
    • 2) conversion of active drug to another active one (codeine/heroin -> morphine)
    • 3) conversion of drug to toxic metabolites (APAP)
    • 4) activation of prodrug
    • 5) product might undergo phase II
  21. characteristics of a prodrug (3)
    • 1) pharmacologically inactive
    • 2) converted rapidly to active metabolite (usually hydrolysis of ester or amide bond)
    • 3) maximizes the amount of active species that reaches site of action
  22. what is formed every time a demethylation rxn occurs

    Image Upload 4
  23. what is formed every time a deethylation rxn occurs

    Image Upload 5
  24. all epoxides are very (electrophilic/nucleophilic)
  25. enzyme that opens up epoxide in styrene oxide
    epoxide hydrolase (EH)
  26. product of reductive dehalogenation reactions
    free radicals
  27. Image Upload 6
  28. Image Upload 7
    reductive/oxidative dehalogenation
  29. Image Upload 8
  30. Image Upload 9
    epoxidation of a double bond
  31. Image Upload 10
  32. Image Upload 11
    heteroatom oxygenation
  33. Image Upload 12
  34. 4 non-CYP drug metabolizing enzymes
    • 1) monoamine oxidase (MAO)
    • 2) alcohol & aldehyde dehydrogenase
    • 3) xanthine oxidase
    • 4) flavin monooxygenases (FMOs)
  35. where is CYP450 located?
    in the smooth ER of all major organs & tissues
