Comparison of cytochrome P450 (CYP) genes from the mouse and human genomes, including nomenclature recommendations for genes, pseudogenes and alternative-splice variants.
OBJECTIVES Completion of both the mouse and human genome sequences in the private and public sectors has prompted comparison between the two species at multiple levels. This review summarizes theExpand

Anti-inflammatory properties of cytochrome P450 epoxygenase-derived eicosanoids.
The epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs) are products of cytochrome P450 epoxygenases that have vasodilatory properties similar to that of endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor. The cytochrome P450Expand

Polymorphisms in human CYP2C8 decrease metabolism of the anticancer drug paclitaxel and arachidonic acid.
Cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2C8 is the principal enzyme responsible for the metabolism of the anti-cancer drug paclitaxel (Taxol). It is also the predominant P450 responsible for the metabolism ofExpand

THE HUMAN INTESTINAL CYTOCHROME P450 “PIE”
Cytochromes P450 (P450s) 3A, 2C, and 1A2 constitute the major “pieces” of the human liver P450 “pie” and account, on average, for 40, 25, and 18%, respectively, of total immunoquantified P450s (JExpand

Cytochrome P450 2J2 promotes the neoplastic phenotype of carcinoma cells and is up-regulated in human tumors.
Cytochrome P450 (CYP) arachidonic acid epoxygenase 2J2 converts arachidonic acid to four regioisomeric epoxyeicosatrienoic acids, which exert diverse biological activities in cardiovascular systemExpand

Enhanced Postischemic Functional Recovery in CYP2J2 Transgenic Hearts Involves Mitochondrial ATP-Sensitive K+ Channels and p42/p44 MAPK Pathway
Human CYP2J2 is abundant in heart and active in the biosynthesis of epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs); however, the functional role of this P450 and its eicosanoid products in the heart remainsExpand
