Metabolite Identification
Common NameN,N-Dimethylaniline
DescriptionN,N-Dimethylaniline, also known as dimethylaminobenzene or dimethylphenylamine, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as dialkylarylamines. These are aliphatic aromatic amines in which the amino group is linked to two aliphatic chains and one aromatic group. N,N-dimethylaniline is a tertiary amine that is aniline in which the amino hydrogens are replaced by two methyl groups. It is a tertiary amine and a dimethylaniline. N,N-dimethylaniline appears as a yellow to brown colored oily liquid with a fishlike odor. It is less dense than water and insoluble in water. Its flash point is 150 °F, and is toxic by ingestion, inhalation, and skin absorption. N,N-Dimethylaniline was used to make dyes and as a solvent. Outside of the human body, N,N-Dimethylaniline has been detected, but not quantified in several different foods, such as common mushrooms, strawberries, feijoa, limes, and black-eyed pea.

Enzymes

General function:
Involved in flavin-containing monooxygenase activity
Specific function:
In contrast with other forms of FMO it does not seem to be a drug-metabolizing enzyme.
Gene Name:
FMO5
Uniprot ID:

Reactions
N,N-Dimethylaniline + NADPH + Oxygen → Dimethylaniline-N-oxide + NADP + Waterdetails
General function:
Involved in flavin-containing monooxygenase activity
Specific function:
Catalyzes the N-oxidation of certain primary alkylamines to their oximes via an N-hydroxylamine intermediate. Inactive toward certain tertiary amines, such as imipramine or chloropromazine. Can catalyze the S-oxidation of methimazole. The truncated form is catalytically inactive.
