Reduction of tertiary amine N-oxides by liver preparations: function of aldehyde oxidase as a major N-oxide reductase.

Reduction of tertiary amine N-oxides to the corresponding amines by liver preparations was investigated with imipramine N-oxide and cyclobenzaprine N-oxide under anaerobic conditions. Rabbit liver cytosol in the presence of an electron donor of aldehyde oxidase exhibited a significant N-oxide reductase activity which is comparable to the activity of the liver microsomes supplemented with NADPH. Rabbit liver aldehyde oxidase also exhibited the N-oxide reductase activity in the presence of its electron donor, indicating that the activity observed in the liver cytosol is due to this cytosolic enzyme. Furthermore, the tertiary amine N-oxide reductase activity of liver cytosols from rats, mice, hamsters and hogs was demonstrated by comparison with that of liver microsomes from these mammalian species.[1]
