[Role of human cytochrome P-450 enzymes in the metabolism of xenobiotics].


Cytochrome P450 enzymes play essential role in metabolism of exogenous compounds. They are found mainly in endoplasmic reticulum of hepatocytes. Purification of different P450 isoforms and determination of their structures and catalytic activities allowed to investigate their participation in metabolism of xenobiotics. Numerous factors cause variations in… (More)
