The potency of N-methylprotoporphyrin IX (N-methylPP) as a ferrochelatase (FC) inhibitor has been previously studied using crude chick embryo liver FC preparations. However, interactions between N-methylprotoporphyrin IX (N-methylPP) and impurities in the enzyme preparation may have compromised the results. The first objective of this study was to compare(More)
Next to oxygen and silicon, aluminum is the most common element on this planet's surface. Studies of potential carcinogenics in aluminum workers have been reported to be equivocal, and consequently can give rise to serious global concern. However, studies have not taken into consideration smoking histories. Also a review of published articles suggests that(More)
Several porphyrinogenic xenobiotics elicit mechanism-based inactivation of cytochrome P450 (CYP) isozymes, leading to the formation of N-alkylprotoporphyrin IX (N-alkylPP), a potent inhibitor of ferrochelatase, the terminal enzyme in heme biosynthesis. Recognizing their role in experimental porphyria, our long term objective is the establishment of an(More)
In a previous study using microsomes from human lymphoblastoid cell lines (HLCL) containing single cDNA-expressed human cytochrome P450 (P450) enzymes, human P450 enzymes were identified that are susceptible to mechanism-based inactivation by the porphyrinogenic xenobiotics, 3-[(arylthio)ethyl]sydnone (TTMS),(More)
INTRODUCTION The porphyrinogenicity of some xenobiotics results from mechanism-based inactivation of selected cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes accompanied by conversion of prosthetic heme groups to N-alkylprotoporphyrins (N-alkylPPs), some of which inhibit ferrochelatase (FC). Problems have arisen in extrapolating xenobiotic porphyrinogenicity observed in test(More)
1. The porphyrinogenicity of certain xenobiotics is due to mechanism-based inactivation of selected cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes, with concurrent formation of N-alkylprotoporphyrins (N-alkylPPs), which disrupt control of haem biosynthesis. An ambiguity arises when extrapolating results obtained with such porphyrinogenic xenobiotics in animals to humans(More)
