P450 superfamily: update on new sequences, gene mapping, accession numbers and nomenclature.
We provide here a list of 481 P450 genes and 22 pseudogenes, plus all accession numbers that have been reported as of October 18, 1995. These genes have been described in 85 eukaryote (includingExpand

The Genome of the Sea Urchin Strongylocentrotus purpuratus
We report the sequence and analysis of the 814-megabase genome of the sea urchin Strongylocentrotus purpuratus, a model for developmental and systems biology. The sequencing strategy combinedExpand

Cytochrome P4501A induction in avian hepatocyte cultures: a promising approach for predicting the sensitivity of avian species to toxic effects of halogenated aromatic hydrocarbons.
Concentration-dependent effects of halogenated aromatic hydrocarbons (HAHs) on cytochrome P4501A (CYP1A) induction in primary hepatocyte cultures prepared from embryos of chickens (four breeds),Expand

Ascites, premature emergence, increased gonadal cell apoptosis, and cytochrome P4501A induction in pink salmon larvae continuously exposed to oil-contaminated gravel during development
Development of pink salmon (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha) incubating in gravel contaminated with weathered Prudhoe Bay crude oil was retarded at concentrations as low as 55.2 μg oil/g gravel. LarvaeExpand

Identification and developmental expression of the full complement of Cytochrome P450 genes in Zebrafish
BackgroundIncreasing use of zebrafish in drug discovery and mechanistic toxicology demands knowledge of cytochrome P450 (CYP) gene regulation and function. CYP enzymes catalyze oxidativeExpand

Uncoupling of cytochrome P450 1A and stimulation of reactive oxygen species production by co-planar polychlorinated biphenyl congeners.
The non-ortho-polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) congener 3,3'4,4'-tetrachlorobiphenyl (PCB 77) can uncouple the catalytic cycle of fish (scup) cytochrome P4501A (CYP1A) and mammalian (rat, human)Expand

Aryl hydrocarbon receptor 2 mediates 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin developmental toxicity in zebrafish.
In order to use the zebrafish as a model vertebrate to investigate the developmental toxicity of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD), it is essential to know whether one or both forms of theExpand

Basal and 3,3',4,4',5-pentachlorobiphenyl-induced expression of cytochrome P450 1A, 1B and 1C genes in zebrafish.
The cytochrome P4501C (CYP1C) gene subfamily was recently discovered in fish, and zebrafish (Danio rerio) CYP1C1 transcript has been cloned. Here we cloned the paralogous CYP1C2, showing that theExpand

Biological effects of polychlorinated dibenzo‐p‐dioxins, dibenzofurans, and biphenyls in bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) chicks
During the1992 breeding season, eggs of bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) were collected within a gradient of exposure to chlorinated hydrocarbon pollutants, particularly from pulp mill pointExpand

Induction of cytochrome P450 1A is required for circulation failure and edema by 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin in zebrafish.
The mechanism of toxicity of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) is thought to result from changes in gene expression via the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR). The induction of cytochrome P450Expand
