The Effect of Copper on the mRNA Expression Profile of Xenobiotic-Metabolizing Enzymes in Cultured Rat H4-II-E Cells

Results indicated that Cu2+ exposure had toxicological implications for cultured H4-II-E cells, and phase I and II enzyme expressions were significantly modulated upon Cu2- exposure.

The African hedgehog (Atelerix albiventris): Low phase I and phase II metabolism activities.

Investigation of mRNA expression changes associated with field exposure to DDTs in chickens from KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

This study shows for the first time interesting and significant correlations between genetic material collected from environmentally-exposed chickens and mRNA expression of several genes involved in immunity and metabolism, showing the usefulness of analysis on field samples from a region with high levels of environmental contamination in detecting potential biomarkers of exposure.

Effects of Pyrene on Human Liver HepG2 Cells: Cytotoxicity, Oxidative Stress, and Transcriptomic Changes in Xenobiotic Metabolizing Enzymes and Inflammatory Markers with Protection Trial Using Lycopene

Results indicated that pyrene caused significant cytotoxicity at 50 n, with a clear production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in a dose-dependent manner, and Interestingly, lycopene significantly reduced pyrene-induced cytot toxicity and ROS production.

β-carotene and retinol reduce benzo[a]pyrene-induced mutagenicity and oxidative stress via transcriptional modulation of xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes in human HepG2 cell line

Investigation of the protective effects of β-carotene and retinol against B[a]P-induced mutagenicity and oxidative stress in human HepG2 cells and the hypothesis of modulating xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes (XMEs) by carotenoids andretinoids as a possible mechanism of protection are tested.

Strain differences in cytochrome P450 mRNA and protein expression, and enzymatic activity among Sprague Dawley, Wistar, Brown Norway and Dark Agouti rats

WI rats tended to have the lowest CYP1A1, 2B1 and 3A2 mRNA expression, protein expression and enzymatic activity among the strains, suggesting that the strain differences in CYP3A2 enzymatics are caused by differences in mRNA expression.

β-carotene and retinol contents in the meat of herbivorous ungulates with a special reference to their public health importance

Consumption of these tissues may provide human with some needs from these important phytochemicals, though ingestion of livers, especially that of the sheep, is not advisable for the pregnant women.

Constitutive Effects of Lead on Aryl Hydrocarbon Receptor Gene Battery and Protection by β-carotene and Ascorbic Acid in Human HepG2 Cells.

Investigation of the modulatory effects of environmentally relevant concentrations of Pb on AhR gene battery, which is controlling xenobiotics metabolism, found that consumption of foods rich in micronutrients may help to reduce the adverse effects of lead in areas with high levels of pollution.



Differential effects of nonhydroxylated flavonoids as inducers of cytochrome P450 1A and 2B isozymes in rat liver.

Results suggest that the induction of P450 1A2 by flavone and tangeretin might involve a transcriptional and/or post-transcriptional mechanism.

Induction of cytochrome P450 enzymes and over-generation of oxygen radicals in beta-carotene supplemented rats.

Findings are consistent with the concept that betaCT is a pro-oxidant and potentially co-carcinogenic pro-vitamin, and may help explain why, in large quantities, it can have harmful effects in humans.

Cytochrome p450 expression in the liver of food-producing animals.

There is substantial experimental evidence that CYP1, CYP2 and CYP3 families are expressed in food-producing animals, but their role in the metabolism of veterinary drugs and other xenobiotics has not been addressed.

Effects of beta-carotene and canthaxanthin on liver xenobiotic-metabolizing enzymes in the rat.

Effect of dietary supplementation with carotenoids on xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes in the liver, lung, kidney and small intestine of the rat

This is the first study identifying the carotenoids BX, CX and AX as inducers of rat lung and kidney xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes.
