Both trans- and cis-stilbene oxide (TSO and CSO) markedly induced heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) at the transcriptional level in rat liver. HO-1 induction by TSO and CSO was preceded by glutathione (GSH)(More)
Concomitant with the depletion of glutathione content, phorone (250 mg/kg, ip.) produced a marked increase in heme oxygenase activity, biphasic effect on delta-aminolevulinic acid synthetase(More)
Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) and lipopolysaccharide (LPS) are well known potent activators of the cell-mediated immune system and thus lead to the decreases in cytochrome P450 (P450). In this study(More)
Phorone, a glutathione (GSH) depletor, induces the expression of mRNAs of heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) and c-jun by mediating the activation of activated protein-1 (AP-1) in rat livers. We have shown that(More)
