Metabolism of dextrorphan by CYP2D6 in different recombinantly expressed systems and its implications for the in vitro assessment of dextromethorphan metabolism.

Cytochrome P450 2D6 (CYP2D6) mediated formation of dextrorphan (DOR) from dextromethorphan (DEX) is widely used as a marker to assess the activity of this enzyme both in vitro and in vivo. The sequential metabolism of DOR during in vitro studies, particularly using recombinant systems (rCYPs) expressing human CYP2D6, is assumed to be negligible. The extent […]
