1,3-Butadiene-induced mitochondrial dysfunction is correlated with mitochondrial CYP2E1 activity in Collaborative Cross mice.


Cytochrome P450 2E1 (CYP2E1) metabolizes low molecular weight hydrophobic compounds, including 1,3-butadiene, which is converted by CYP2E1 to electrophilic epoxide metabolites that covalently modify cellular proteins and DNA. Previous CYP2E1 studies have mainly focused on the enzyme localized in the endoplasmic reticulum (erCYP2E1); however, active CYP2E1… (More)
