How do enzyme kinetics affect an individuals response to therapeutic and other drugs.
One can call the drug-metabolism enzyme as the “mixed function oxidase”, or the “mono-oxygenase” (Bishop, Fody & Schoeff, 2013). The particular enzyme contains the “cytochrome P450”. Along with it, the particular enzyme contains the “cytochrome b5”. Other than these components, components like “NADPH-cytochrome P450 reductase”, along with other components are included in it at the same time. The CY or the “hepatic cytochrome P450s” belongs to a multi-gene family and thus plays an important role in the process of metabolism (Zanger & Schwab 2013).
