Finding Drug Metabolic Sites. ‘A software program that could have a significant impact on drug discovery has been developed and tested by a European group. The program, MetaSite, predicts which part of a potential drug compound will be metabolized by one of the major human cytochrome P450 enzymes. It also predicts which cytochrome will catalyze the process. Cytochrome P450s are key enzymes in the elimination of drugs from the body.’
