Fungal Cytochrome P450 Monooxygenases: Their Distribution, Structure, Functions, Family Expansion, and Evolutionary Origin
Cytochrome P450 (CYP) monooxygenase superfamily contributes a broad array of biological functions in living organisms. In fungi, CYPs play diverse and pivotal roles in versatile metabolism and fungalExpand
Cytochrome P450 CYP1B1 determines susceptibility to 7, 12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene-induced lymphomas.
CYP1B1-null mice, created by targeted gene disruption in embryonic stem cells, were born at the expected frequency from heterozygous matings with no observable phenotype, thus establishing thatExpand

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the measurement of substrate and inhibitor binding to microsomal cytochrorne P-450 by optical-difference spectroscopy. Difference spectra are very readilyExpand
Mitochondrial Processing of Newly Synthesized Steroidogenic Acute Regulatory Protein (StAR), but Not Total StAR, Mediates Cholesterol Transfer to Cytochrome P450 Side Chain Cleavage Enzyme in Adrenal
The metabolism of cholesterol by cytochrome P450 side chain cleavage enzyme is hormonally regulated in steroidogenic tissues via intramitochondrial cholesterol transport. The mediating steroidogenicExpand

The adrenal cortex is a tissue of excess in terms of both cholesterol metabolism and cholesterol exchange with the circulation. Exceptionally high levels of lipoprotein receptors in this highlyExpand
Identification of a rat adrenal cytochrome P450 active in polycyclic hydrocarbon metabolism as rat CYP1B1. Demonstration of a unique tissue- specific pattern of hormonal and aryl hydrocarbon
Antibodies against a novel adrenocorticotropic hormone-inducible cytochrome P450 (P450RAP), responsible for polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon metabolism in rat adrenal microsomes (Otto, S.,Expand
Tissue-specific synthesis and oxidative metabolism of estrogens.
Estrogen exposure represents the major known risk factor for development of breast cancer in women and is implicated in the development of prostate cancer in men. Human breast tissue has been shownExpand
Aryl-hydrocarbon receptor is an inhibitory regulator of lipid synthesis and of commitment to adipogenesis.
The aryl-hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) is a ligand-dependent transcription factor that mediates the biological effects of 2,3,7, 8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD). In mouse embryo fibroblasts, TCDDExpand
Characterization of CYP1B1 and CYP1A1 expression in human mammary epithelial cells: role of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor in polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon metabolism.
CYP1B1 and CYP1A1 expression and metabolism of 7,12-dimethylbenz(a)anthracene (DMBA) have been characterized in early-passage human mammary epithelial cells (HMECs) isolated from reductionExpand
Characterization of the Mouse Cyp1B1 Gene
Transcriptional activation of theCyp1B1 gene in rodents is stimulated by both polycyclic hydrocarbons and cAMP. The mouse Cyp1B1 gene structure contains three exons, of which the second nucleotide ofExpand
