1,1-Dichloro-2,2-bis(p-chlorophenyl)ethylene (DDE), a persistent environmental contaminant, is a metabolite of the pesticide 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis(p-chlorophenyl)ethane (DDT). DDE is similar to phenobarbital (PB) in that both compounds are inducers of rat hepatic cytochrome P450 2B and 3A (CYP 2B and 3A). The induction of CYP 2B and 3A by PB is known to(More)
Activation of beta-adrenoceptors has been shown to promote renin secretion in both human kidney and placenta. In kidney, the enhanced secretion is immediately observed, and mobilization of renin in the storage granules accounts for such a rapid response. In contrast, the enhanced secretion in placenta is delayed for 6-12 hr after receptor activation and(More)
