Despite the importance of avian P450 forms in modulation of the toxicity of pesticides and other environmental chemicals, relatively little work has been done upon them, and very few forms have been fully characterised. An avian form that appears to belong to family 1A is readily inducible by planar molecules (e.g. coplanar PCB's, PCDD and certain PAHs) and has been the basis of a biomarker assay used in field studies. Although it is recognised by antibodies for mammalian P450 1A1, it evidently… CONTINUE READING
