IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Molecular Assay, Gene Anomaly, Mutation, CYP2D6
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify mutations in cytochrome P450, family 2, subfamily D, polypeptide 6 (CYP2D6) gene, located at chromosome 22q13.1, which is responsible for the metabolism of many drugs and environmental chemicals that it oxidizes. The gene is involved in the metabolism of drugs such as antiarrhythmics, adrenoreceptor antagonists, and tricyclic antidepressants. Mutations at this locus have been identified in patients with poor metabolism of drugs, early-onset Parkinson's disease, ankylosing spondylitis, and leukemia.
