I’m slightly intoxicated right now so excuse the typos and comments (profanity might be involved)
Biotransformation (mostly liver)
o Convert lipophilic to hydrophilic molecule aids in elimination
Reduction, oxidation, hydrolysis, conjugation
o Phase I by P450s (which are inducible, inhibitable, and genetically polymorphic)
Zone 3, mitochondria
1. Drugs binds P450-Fe3+ complex
2. Add e- to make Fe2+
3. Reoxidize (O2)
4. Restore P450-Fe3+ and get oxidized drug (sometimes this makes an electrophilic
compound that fucks up DNA and proteins; actually most of drug bioactivation
to a more harmful compound is due to P450s, you’d almost think they’re the bad
o Phase II
Conjugation in kidney and liver
Glucuronidation by glucuronsyl transferase
Elimination mainly by kidney (some intestine via bile, also breath, saliva, breast
milk but not for men)
Case study: codeine (don’t take this while drunk, like my friend did, but she survived thankfully)
o Metabolized by CYPs
(2D6) O-demethylation morphine
(3A4) N-demethylation norcodeine
Conjugation with glucuronides and sulfates
Mostly norcodeine-6-glucuronide
Ethanol metabolism (hehe)
o Normal: ethanol acetaldehyde (alcohol dehydrogenase in cytosol) acetate
(aldehyde dehydrogenase in mitochondria) Kreb’s cycle
o Acetaldehyde is toxic
o Use of Kreb’s cycle forces glucose to go into lactate cycle metabolic acidosis
o Also use of Kreb’s cycle depletes NAD accumulation of Acetyl-CoA forces FA
metabolism fatty liver (like your mom)
o Chronic use
Acetaldehyde immune response inflammation
intestinal permeability endotoxins Kupffer and immune
inflammation and Stellate (fibrosis) = RIP liver XP
- slide 25 (don’t quote things you don’t know)
MDMA MDA (N-demethylation)
o Synthetic derivative of meth (I’m not high, just drunk. I don’t know where to get meth
o Increased alertness, energy, euphoria, sociability
o Temperature is a major determinant of overdose survival rate
o Phase I: to MDA, HHMA, HHA
o Phase II: to glucuronide, sulfate, and GSH conjugates urine excretion
