Metabolite Identification
Common NameDidemethylcitalopram
DescriptionDidemethylcitalopram belongs to the class of organic compounds known as phenylbutylamines. Phenylbutylamines are compounds containing a phenylbutylamine moiety, which consists of a phenyl group substituted at the fourth carbon by an butan-1-amine. Didemethylcitalopram is a very strong basic compound (based on its pKa). Didemethylcitalopram exists in all living organisms, ranging from bacteria to humans. Within humans, didemethylcitalopram participates in a number of enzymatic reactions. In particular, didemethylcitalopram can be converted into citalopram aldehyde through the action of the enzymes amine oxidase [flavin-containing] a and amine oxidase [flavin-containing] b. In addition, didemethylcitalopram and formaldehyde can be biosynthesized from N-desmethylcitalopram; which is mediated by the enzyme cytochrome P450 2D6. In humans, didemethylcitalopram is involved in citalopram metabolism pathway.
