ABSTRACT We sequenced all exons and exon-intron junctions of the CYP2B6 gene from 200 Japanese individuals. We found three novel single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) (1375A>G, 1427G>A and 1454A>T) causing amino acid substitutions (Met(459)Val, Gly(476)Asp and Gln(485)Leu in exon 9), respectively. The detected SNP was as follows: 1) SNP, 031226Hiratsuka01; GENE NAME, CYP2B6; ACCESSION NUMBER, AC023172; LENGTH, 25 base; 5'-CAGAACTTCTCCA/GTGGCCAGCCCCG-3'. 2) SNP, 031226Hiratsuka02; GENE NAME, CYP2B6; ACCESSION NUMBER, AC023172; LENGTH, 25 base; 5'-CCCAGGAGTGTGG/ATGTGGGCAAAAT-3'. 3) SNP, 031226Hiratsuka03; GENE NAME, CYP2B6; ACCESSION NUMBER, AC023172; LENGTH, 25 base; 5'-CCCCAACATACCA/TGATCCGCTTCCT-3'.

    ABSTRACT: Cytochrome P450 (CYP) is a supergene family of metabolizing enzymes involved in the phase I metabolism of drugs and endogenous compounds. CYP oxidation often leads to inactive drug metabolites or to highly toxic or carcinogenic metabolites involved in adverse drug reactions (ADR). During the last decade, the impact of CYP polymorphism in various drug responses and ADR has been demonstrated. Fifty six percent of drugs involved in ADR are metabolized by polymorphic phase I metabolizing enzymes, 86% among them being CYP. Here, we review the major CYP polymorphic forms, their impact for drug response and current advances in molecular modeling of CYP polymorphism. We focus on recent studies exploring CYP polymorphism performed by the use of sequence- and/or protein structure- based computational approaches. The importance of understanding the molecular mechanisms related to CYP polymorphism and drug response at the atomic level is outlined.

    ABSTRACT: Using a multiple alignment of 175 cytochrome P450 (CYP) family 2 sequences, 20 conserved sequence motifs (CSMs) were identified with the program PCPMer. Functional importance of the CSM in CYP2B enzymes was assessed from available data on site-directed mutants and genetic variants. These analyses suggested an important role of the CSM 8, which corresponds to(187)RFDYKD(192) in CYP2B4. Further analysis showed that residues 187, 188, 190, and 192 have a very high rank order of conservation compared with 189 and 191. Therefore, eight mutants (R187A, R187K, F188A, D189A, Y190A, K191A, D192A, and a negative control K186A) were made in an N-terminal truncated and modified form of CYP2B4 with an internal mutation, which is termed 2B4dH/H226Y. Function was examined with the substrates 7-methoxy-4-(trifluoromethyl)coumarin (7-MFC), 7-ethoxy-4-(trifluoromethyl)coumarin (7-EFC), 7-benzyloxy-4-(trifluoromethyl)coumarin (7-BFC), and testosterone and with the inhibitors 4-(4-chlorophenyl)imidazole (4-CPI) and bifonazole (BIF). Compared with the template and K186A, the mutants R187A, R187K, F188A, Y190A, and D192A showed > or =2-fold altered substrate specificity, k(cat), K(m), and/or k(cat)/K(m) for 7-MFC and 7-EFC and 3- to 6-fold decreases in differential inhibition (IC(50,BIF)/IC(50,4-CPI)). Subsequently, these mutants displayed 5-12 degrees C decreases in thermal stability (T(m)) and 2-8 degrees C decreases in catalytic tolerance to temperature (T(50)) compared with the template and K186A. Furthermore, when R187A and D192A were introduced in CYP2B1dH, the P450 expression and thermal stability were decreased. In addition, R187A showed increased activity with 7-EFC and decreased IC(50,BIF)/IC(50,4-CPI) compared with 2B1dH. Analysis of long range residue-residue interactions in the CYP2B4 crystal structures indicated strong hydrogen bonds involving Glu(149)-Asn(177)-Arg(187)-Tyr(190) and Asp(192)-Val(194), which were significantly-reduced/abolished by the Arg(187)-->Ala and Asp(192)-->Alasubstitutions, respectively.

    ABSTRACT: Identification of poor and rapid metabolizers for the category of drugs metabolized by cytochrome P450 2B6 (CYP2B6) is important for understanding the differences in clinical responses of drugs metabolized by this enzyme. This study reports the prevalence of poor and rapid metabolizers in North Indian population residing in the National Capital Territory. The prevalence of poor and rapid metabolizers was determined in the target population for the category of drugs metabolized by CYP2B6 by measuring plasma bupropion, a drug metabolized by CYP2B6, and its metabolite. Bupropion (75 mg) was administered to 107 volunteers, and the drug (bupropion) and its metabolite (hydroxybupropion) were determined simultaneously by LCMS/MS in the plasma. CYP2B6 activity was measured as hydroxybupropion/bupropion ratio, and volunteers were categorized as rapid or poor metabolizers on the basis of cutoff value of log (hydroxybupropion/bupropion). Significant differences were observed between the mean metabolite/drug ratio of rapid metabolizers (Mean = 0.59) and poor metabolizers (Mean = 0.26) with p<0.0001. Results indicate that 20.56% individuals in the target population were poor metabolizers for the category of drugs metabolized by CYP2B6. Cutoff value defined in this study can be used as a tool for evaluating the status of CYP2B6 using bupropion as a probe drug. The baseline information would be clinically useful before administering the drugs metabolized by this isoform.
