Because the asthmatic bronchial epithelium is characterized by widespread damage, we postulated that this is associated with expression of cell cycle inhibitors that control proliferation. Using bronchial biopsies, the epithelium was the major site of expression of the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor, p21(waf). Immunostaining usually occurred in the(More)
These studies describe the phase I and II metabolism of 7-ethoxycoumarin (7-EC) in the isolated, perfused intestinal loop. Following cytochrome P450-dependent oxidative deethylation of 7-EC by intestinal epithelial cells, the product, 7-hydroxycoumarin (7-HC), undergoes phase II conjugation to form both the glucuronide and sulfate conjugates. The capacity(More)
