Metabolite Identification
Common NameFosphenytoin
DescriptionFosphenytoin, also known as cerebyx or HMPDP, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as diphenylmethanes. Diphenylmethanes are compounds containing a diphenylmethane moiety, which consists of a methane wherein two hydrogen atoms are replaced by two phenyl groups. By promoting sodium efflux from neurons, phenytoin tends to stabilize the threshold against hyperexcitability caused by excessive stimulation or environmental changes capable of reducing membrane sodium gradient. Fosphenytoin is a drug which is used for the control of generalized convulsive status epilepticus and prevention and treatment of seizures occurring during neurosurgery. it can also be substituted, short-term, for oral phenytoin. It works by slowing down impulses in the brain that cause seizures. Signs of acute toxicity in animals included ataxia, labored breathing, ptosis, and hypoactivity. Fosphenytoin is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). In humans, fosphenytoin is involved in the metabolic disorder called the fosphenytoin (antiarrhythmic) metabolism pathway. Fosphenytoin is a water-soluble phenytoin prodrug used only in hospitals for the treatment of epileptic seizures. Fosphenytoin is a potentially toxic compound.

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 performs a variety of oxidation reactions (e.g. caffeine 8-oxidation, omeprazole sulphoxidation, midazolam 1'-hydroxylation and midazolam 4-hydroxylation) of structurally unrelated compounds, including steroids, fatty acids, and xenobiotics. Acts as a 1,8-cineole 2-exo-monooxygenase. The enzyme also hydroxylates etoposide.

General function:
Involved in ion channel activity
Specific function:
This protein mediates the voltage-dependent sodium ion permeability of excitable membranes. Assuming opened or closed conformations in response to the voltage difference across the membrane, the protein forms a sodium-selective channel through which Na(+) ions may pass in accordance with their electrochemical gradient. It is a tetrodotoxin-resistant Na(+) channel isoform. This channel is responsible for the initial upstroke of the action potential in the electrocardiogram
