Review Article


Cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2D6 is one of the most investigated CYPs in relation to genetic polymorphism, but accounts for only a small percentage of all hepatic CYPs (∼2–4%). There is a large interindividual variation in the enzyme activity of CYP2D6. The enzyme is largely non-inducible and metabolizes ∼25% of current drugs. Typical substrates for CYP2D6 are largely lipophilic bases and include some antidepressants, antipsychotics, antiarrhythmics, antiemetics, β-adrenoceptor antagonists (β-blockers) and opioids. The CYP2D6 activity ranges considerably within a population and includes ultrarapid metabolizers (UMs), extensive metabolizers (EMs), intermediate metabolizers (IMs) and poor metabolizers (PMs). There is a considerable variability in the CYP2D6 allele distribution among different ethnic groups, resulting in variable percentages of PMs, IMs, EMs and UMs in a given population.

To date, 74 allelic variants and a series of subvariants of the CYP2D6 gene have been reported and the number of alleles is still growing. Among these are fully functional alleles, alleles with reduced function and null (non-functional) alleles, which convey a wide range of enzyme activity, from no activity to ultrarapid metabolism of substrates. As a consequence, drug adverse effects or lack of drug effect may occur if standard doses are applied. The alleles *10, *17, *36 and *41 give rise to substrate-dependent decreased activity. Null alleles of CYP2D6 do not encode a functional protein and there is no detectable residual enzymatic activity. It is clear that alleles *3, *4, *5, *6, *7, *8, *11, *12, *13, *14, *15, *16, *18, *19, *20, *21, *38, *40, *42, *44, *56 and *62 have no enzyme activity. They are responsible for the PM phenotype when present in homozygous or compound heterozygous constellations. These alleles are of clinical significance as they often cause altered drug clearance and drug response. Among the most important variants are CYP2D6*2, *3, *4, *5, *10, *17 and *41. On the other hand, the CYP2D6 gene is subject to copy number variations that are often associated with the UM phenotype. Marked decreases in drug concentrations have been observed in UMs with tramadol, venlafaxine, morphine, mirtazapine and metoprolol. The functional impact of CYP2D6 alleles may be substrate-dependent. For example, CYP2D6*17 is generally considered as an allele with reduced function, but it displays remarkable variability in its activity towards substrates such as dextromethorphan, risperidone, codeine and haloperidol.

The clinical consequence of the CYP2D6 polymorphism can be either occurrence of adverse drug reactions or altered drug response. Drugs that are most affected by CYP2D6 polymorphisms are commonly those in which CYP2D6 represents a substantial metabolic pathway either in the activation to form active metabolites or clearance of the agent. For example, encainide metabolites are more potent than the parent drug and thus QRS prolongation is more apparent in EMs than in PMs. In contrast, propafenone is a more potent b-blocker than its metabolites and the β-blocking activity during propafenone therapy is more prominent in PMs than EMs, as the parent drug accumulates in PMs. Since flecainide is mainly eliminated through renal excretion, and both R- and S-flecainide possess equivalent potency for sodium channel inhibition, the CYP2D6 phenotype has a minor impact on the response to flecainide. Since the contribution of CYP2D6 is greater for metoprolol than for carvedilol, propranolol and timolol, a stronger gene-dose effect is seen with this β-blocker, while such an effect is lesser or marginal in other β-blockers.

Concordant genotype-phenotype correlation provides a basis for predicting the phenotype based on genetic testing, which has the potential to achieve optimal pharmacotherapy. However, genotype testing for CYP2D6 is not routinely performed in clinical practice and there is uncertainty regarding genotype-phenotype, gene-concentration and gene-dose relationships. Further prospective studies on the clinical impact of CYP2D6-dependent metabolism of drugs are warranted in large cohorts of subjects.
