3,3'-Diindolylmethane induces CYP1A2 in cultured precision-cut human liver slices.

1. The effect of 3,3'-diindolylmethane (DIM), an indole derivative derived from cruciferous vegetables, on cytochrome P450 (CYP) isoforms in the CYP1A and CYP3A subfamilies has been studied in 72-h cultured human liver slices. 2. In cultured human liver slices 50 microM DIM induced 7-ethoxyresorufin O-deethylase and to a lesser extent 7-methoxyresorufin O… (More)
