In Silico Prediction of Metabolism A Review of Oxidative N-Dealkylation Biotransformations.pdf

pdf fileLong A; Murray E; Rydberg P;

Drugs containing secondary or tertiary amines commonly undergo metabolic reactions such as nitrone formation, lactam formation or oxidative N-dealkylation. Recent work on a knowledge-based expert system has focused on the refinement of existing biotransformations and the development of new ones in order to capture such knowledge more accurately. The formation of lactams is a well-studied route for aza-alicyclic compounds, for example substrates such as indeloxazine and meptazinol; however, literature evidence suggested that lactams, cyclic thioamides and cyclic amidines do not undergo such biotransformations. Oxidative N-dealkylation, including ring opening type reactions, are also an important metabolic route in mammalian xenobiotic metabolism and the reaction is of wide scope for secondary and tertiary amine substrates.
