The Importance of the Phase I and Phase II Pathways
Phase I detoxification consists of oxidation reduction and hydrolysis. Phase one detoxification is catalysed by enzymes known as the cytochrome P450 enzyme group or Mixed Function Oxidase enzymes MFO. These enzymes reside on the membrane system of the liver cells (called Hepatocytes). Simply put, this pathway converts a toxic chemical into a less harmful chemical. This is achieved by various chemical reactions (such as oxidation, reduction and hydrolysis), and during this process free radicals are produced which, if excessive, can damage the liver cells. Antioxidants (such as vitamin C and E and natural carotenoids) support the reduction of damage caused by these free radicals. If antioxidants are lacking and toxin exposure is high, the toxic chemicals in the body will become far more dangerous.
The Phase II is called the conjugation pathway, whereby the liver cells add another substance (eg. cysteine, glycine or a sulphur molecule) to a toxic chemical or drug, to render it less harmful. This makes the toxin or drug water-soluble, so it can then be excreted from the body via watery fluids such as bile or urine.
