CYP2C9*2, CYP2C9*3, CYP2C19*2, and CYP2C19*3 were not significantly correlated with the metabolism of CP in 19 human liver specimens (11). Phase II drug metabolism is catalyzed by GSTs, which consist of several isoenzymes, including mu (GSTM1), pi (GSTP1), alpha (GSTA1), theta (GSTT1), and zeta. The GSTs detoxify many chemotherapeutic drugs, including CP, are induced by oxidative stress, and detoxify the reactive oxygen species (ROS) that are produced by chemotherapeutic drugs and radiation therapy.
