Molecular Modelling Analysis of the Metabolism of Codeine

Codeine (3-methoxymorphine) is a commonly used opinoid (Caraco et al., 1997) The main metabolic pathway for codeine is via conjugation with glucuronic.

The heats of formation in kcal mol-1 of codeine and codeine-6-glucuronide as per PM3 calculations are, respectively -68.72 and -314.83.

Molecular modelling analyses show that codeine and its metabolites have moderate to large solvation energy values indicating that the compounds would have moderate or high solubility in water and hence can be easily excreted via urine. The metabolite codeinone has a much smaller LUMO-HOMO energy difference so that the compound would be more kinetically labile. The higher reactivity of codeinone and the presence of localized electron-deficient regions on its molecular surface indicate that it will react more readily with biomolecules including glutathione, thus compromising anti-oxidant status of the cell.

Introduction.

The large difference in heats of formation of codeine and codeine-6-glucurnide suggest that the conversion of codeine to codeine-6-glucuronide may be spontaneous although a firm conclusion can only be drawn when Gibb’s energy change for the conversion is calculated taking into consideration all reactants and products.

Get to Know an Enzyme CYP2D6 - Pharmacy Times

The enzyme CYP2D6 affects the metabolism of many drugs, and its effect is altered than one CYP450 enzyme, and CYP2D6 may represent only one pathway. activity, therefore, are likely to have little response to codeine.

Codeine is largely a prodrug, and its activity is primarily dependent on its conversion to morphine. Patients who have little CYP2D6 activity, therefore, are likely to have little response to codeine. The number of people with low CYP2D6 activity is substantial, when one considers the people genetically deficient in CYP2D6, plus the many patients who are taking CYP2D6 inhibitors. A more dangerous situation, however, occurs when ultrarapid metabolizers take codeine. They may develop moderate-to-severe adverse effects from excessive morphine concentrations in the blood.
