    Part B Q1. The normal dose of paracetamol is very safe to use and it is not over 4g per 24 hours; however, when the patient take more than 6g per 24 hours of paracetamol, the liver necrosis will happen within 10 to 12 hours and liver damage may occur within 24 to 48 hours. For the metabolism, most of the paracetamol is converted to nontoxic metabolites by the phase II conjugation of glucuronide and sulfate and a small amount of paracetamol is oxidized by the Cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes in the phase I metabolism. In this phase, CYP1A2 and CYP2E1 enzymes convert paracetamol to N-acetyl-p-benzoquinoneimine (NAPBQI) which is highly toxic substances. NAPBQI will rapidly enter the phase II conjugation of glucuronide and detoxified in the liver…

  • Steroids In High School Sports Essay

    Steroid use for high school sports can have many negative affects on your body, that people don’t realize. The human body reacts differently to different things. People take steroids to help their performance in sports. They may also take them to enlarge their muscles. What they don’t know is that it has more than just positive effects. They are too caught up in their appearance to even realize all of the side effects it can put out. Males are proven to take most of the blame for the use of…

  • Alkylated Polycyclic Aromatic Cells: The Effects Of PAH?

    hours exposer to SK-N-SH cells. Exposed differentiated neuronal cells showed significant dose-dependent increase levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS), even at with sub-lethal concentration (DBT, and Ret). Intracellular superoxide measurement analyses by Mitosox stained cells revealed similar patterns of ROS. Though ROS production contributes significantly to induced apoptotic cell death, we hypothesized that PACs trigger ROS production, leading to the activation of apoptotic signaling…

  • Lab Report Cyp1a1

    role in biological systems to catalyze and control different reactions. The study of enzymes’ behaviors toward substrates and products is significant to understand various enzyme catalyzed reactions in living organisms. One of the most important enzymatic group is cytochrome P450 (CYP450) which contribute to the metabolism of many endogenous as well as exogenous substances such as drugs. Although there are several subtypes of CYP450 family, CYP450 1A1 is going to be discussed. Consequently, the…

  • Importance Of Coordination Compounds

    importance. Examples include : • Vitamin B12 • Chlorophyll • Haemoglobin • Myoglobin • Cytochromes Vitamin B12 is an important coordination compound found in biological systems. It is a exclusive biomolecule because no other vitamin contains a metal ion. This is the only naturally occurring organometallic compound found in biology. Its common feature is that its metal ion is enclosed in a macrocyclic ligand. It is surely the most complex non polymeric compound and is devoid of protein…

  • Pros And Cons Of Cyclophosphamide

    • The mechanism of action of cyclophosphamide is an alkylating agent that causes cross-linkage of DNA strands, thereby blocking synthesis of DNA, RNA, and protein. Has pronounced antineoplastic effects and immunosuppressive activity. EFFECTS?? • The Pharmacodynamics of the cyclophosphamide includes the absorption from the GI tack. The drug is widely distributed going to the brain, and breast milk. Should be careful while taking cyclophosphamide because it does cross the placenta. The drug…

  • Zinc Oxide Nanoparticles Case Study

    These can react with biological molecules (DNA, proteins, and lipids) leading to oxidative damage. (68) [33] Another source of ROS generation is cytochrome P450 enzymes (P450s) where the metabolism of ZnO NPs by P450 cytochrome is another possible source of ROS [60]. (65) reeeppp Normally, cells are equipped with a variety of antioxidants that serve to counterbalance the effect of oxidants including; superoxide dismutase (SOD) catalase, Glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) and Glutathione GSH.…

    2- The fluctuations in plasma drug concentration are minimized and side effect associates with concentration are also minimized. 3- Complete absorption of drug from the floating formulation is expected even at alkaline pH of intestine. The dissolution occurs in gastric fluid and after emptying of the stomach contents the dissolved drug is available for absorption in small intestine. 4- Because of site‐specific absorption from the upper part of the GIT, Drugs that have poor bioavailability are…

    radicals and enhancing the function of GSH (Loor et al., 2010). Glutathione binds to the toxic electrophile, NAPQI produced from paracetamol and reduces its toxic effect, thus preventing hepatotoxicity. Vitamin C can also increase the half-life of paracetamol and increase the adverse effects that are produced by paracetamol (Hechtman, 2013). Buthionine sulfoximine (BSO) depletes the stores of GSH in tissues since it is a specific inhibitor of glutathione synthesis. Consequently, the reduction…

    PaDEL and Pubchem 2D fingerprint descriptors and was done on the CypRules Server . In this simulation, molecules were represented in the machine-readable format SDF. According to simulation results metabolizing inhibition for Haloperidol and Quetiapine should occur via binding with isoform CYP2D6 as this one bases with aromatic groups 5–7A which are removed from the basic center. However, in vitro studies on quetiapine showed that isozyme CYP2D6 played a minor role in the metabolism as CYP3A4…
