The soybean phytoestrogen, genistein (Gen), has anabolic effects on bone through mechanisms that remain to be elucidated. We examined the role of nitric oxide (NO) and its downstream effector guanylyl cyclase (GC) in mediating the effects of Gen on the proliferation and osteoblastic maturation of primary mouse bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells(More)
AIMS To evaluate the effect of the CYP1A2*1C and CYP1A2*1F polymorphisms on the inducibility of CYP1A2 by omeprazole in healthy subjects. METHODS Mutations of CYP2C19 and CYP1A2 were identified by PCR-RFLP. Omeprazole, 120 mg day-1, was given to 12 extensive metabolizers (EM) with respect to CYP2C19 (six CYP1A2*1F/CYP1A2*1F and six CYP1A2*1C/CYP1A2*1F of(More)
1. The aim was to investigate the phenotype distribution characteristic and gender-related differences of CYP2E1 activity in a healthy Chinese population. 2. Two hundred and three healthy Chinese subjects (105 men, 98 women) were enrolled in this study. 3. CYP2E1 activity was determined by plasma 6-hydroxychlorzoxazone-to-chlorzoxazone concentration ratio(More)
AIM To investigate the distribution of genotype of CYP3AP1 in Chinese Han population and the correlation with CYP3A activity. METHODS Polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) was employed in CYP3AP1 genotype analysis; using midazolam as probe drug, CYP3A activity of 191 Chinese healthy subjects was measured by plasma(More)
