Polymorphism of quinone-metabolizing enzymes and susceptibility to ozone-induced acute effects.
The role of the genetic polymorphism of NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase (NQO1) and glutathione-S-transferase micro-1 (GSTM1) in the responsiveness to O(3)-induced acute effects was investigated in 24Expand

Polymorphism of xenobiotic-metabolizing enzymes and excretion of styrene-specific mercapturic acids.
The role of polymorphic xenobiotic-metabolizing enzymes in the interindividual variability of phenylhydroxyethyl mercapturic acids (PHEMAs) was investigated in 56 styrene-exposed workers. AmbientExpand
