Metabolite Identification
Common NameFloxuridine
DescriptionFloxuridine, also known as 5FDU or FUDR, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as pyrimidine 2'-deoxyribonucleosides. Pyrimidine 2'-deoxyribonucleosides are compounds consisting of a pyrimidine linked to a ribose which lacks a hydroxyl group at position 2. Floxuridine is a drug which is used for palliative management of gastrointestinal adenocarcinoma metastatic to the liver, when given by continuous regional intra-arterial infusion in carefully selected patients who are considered incurable by surgery or other means. also for the palliative management of liver cancer (usually administered by hepatic intra-arterial infusion). Floxuridine is available as a sterile, nonpyrogenic, lyophilized powder for reconstitution. An antineoplastic antimetabolite that is metabolized to fluorouracil when administered by rapid injection. Floxuridine is an anti-metabolite or a pyrimidine analog that works by disrupting the process S-phase of cell division, selectively targeting rapidly dividing cells. Floxuridine is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Floxuridine exists in all living organisms, ranging from bacteria to humans. 5-Fluorouracil primarily works by interfering with DNA synthesis; however, it may also inhibit the formation of fraudulent RNA via physical incorporation into the RNA. After successful biotransformation, floxuridine is converted into an active component, flurouracil, which blocks the enzyme which converts cytosine nucleosides into the deoxy derivative. Oral, rat LD50: 215 mg/kg.

Enzymes

General function:
Involved in monooxygenase activity
Specific function:
Cytochromes P450 are a group of heme-thiolate monooxygenases. In liver microsomes, this enzyme is involved in an NADPH-dependent electron transport pathway. It oxidizes a variety of structurally unrelated compounds, including steroids, fatty acids, and xenobiotics. This enzyme contributes to the wide pharmacokinetics variability of the metabolism of drugs such as S-warfarin, diclofenac, phenytoin, tolbutamide and losartan.
