  • 1 July 1964
TLDR
The present paper gives a detailed account of the investigations on rabbit liver microsomes and crude microsomal digests, which have led to postulate the hemoprotein nature of the pigment.
Cytochrome P450
TLDR
It is shown that in allylic hydroxyl ations (catalyzed by either model metalloporphyrins or cytochrome P450) rehydridization could occur to yield multiple products.

TLDR
Oxidative metabolism of foreign hydrophobic compounds as the first step of their excretion from the animal body is apparently another major function of cytochrome P450, which protects animals from noxious foreign compounds, man-created and natural.
Sex-dependent expression of a transcription factor, Ad4BP, regulating steroidogenic P-450 genes in the gonads during prenatal and postnatal rat development.
TLDR
It is suggested that the Müllerian inhibitory substance gene may be a target of Ad4BP since this gene has a conserved Ad4-binding site within the promoter, which is recognized by Ad4 BP expressed in the fetal testes.
Activation of CYP11A and CYP11B gene promoters by the steroidogenic cell-specific transcription factor, Ad4BP.
TLDR
Only Ad1(CRE), a CRE homolog, showed forskolin-dependent transcriptional activity in adrenal tumor Y-1 cells, whereas the other elements were not able to stimulate transcription by themselves.
