Abstract

CYP2A6 is known as an enzyme responsible for the metabolism of several clincally used drugs such as tegafur. Previously, we found two novel genotypes of the CYP2A6 gene, D-type and E-type, and the E-type was clarified to be homozygous for the CYP2A6*4A allele. On the other hand, since the D-type was reported to lack regions from at least intron 5 to a part of exon 9 of the CYP2A6 gene, it caused a misunderstanding that the D-type would be a partial CYP2A6 gene-deleted allele. In this paper, we demonstrate that the D-type is a genotype heterozygous for the CYP2A6*4A and another novel entire CYP2A6 gene-deleted allele, CYP2A6*4B, by analyzing a Japanese family including parents genotyped as the CYP2A6*4A/4A and CYP2A6*1A/*4B, respectively.
