A cytochrome P-450 (P-450) enzyme of the CYP2B subfamily was partially purified from human liver microsomes and characterized with respect to immunochemical properties, N-terminal amino acid sequence, and catalytic activities toward typical P-450 substrates. P-450 enzymes were monitored in chromatographic fractions by immunoblotting analysis using antibodies raised against a monkey P-450 2B, as well as several purified human P-450 enzymes. The final P-450 2B preparation thus obtained was… Expand
Expression of human cytochrome P450 2B6 in Escherichia coli: characterization of catalytic activity and expression levels in human liver.
Examination of catalytic activities of the purified reconstituted protein indicated the potential utility of (S)-mephenytoin N-demethylation and testosterone 16beta-hydroxylation as markers for P450 2B6. Expand
Functional characterization of hepatic microsomal and heterologousely expressed rabbit cytochrome P450 2B enzymes.
Results demonstrate that one or more of the amino acid differences in P450 2B5 are critical to its substrate specificities and selective inactivation and have the potential to exhibit different hepatic biotransformation pathways in comparison with animals that lack this enzyme. Expand

It is suggested that CYP2B6 represents a significant portion of total CYP in human liver, and the exquisite sensitivity of this antibody (fmol quantities are detected easily on immunoblots) may explain the detection of CYP 2B6 in 100% of livers versus its detection in a limited number of liver by certain other investigators.

Prediction of human liver microsomal oxidations of 7-ethoxycoumarin and chlorzoxazone with kinetic parameters of recombinant cytochrome P-450 enzymes.
The view that the roles of individual CYP enzymes in the oxidation of xenobiotic chemicals in human liver microsomes could be predicted by kinetic parameters of individual Cytochrome P-450 enzymes and by the levels of each of the CYP enzyme in livermicrosomes of human samples is supported. Expand
Human cytochrome P4502B6: interindividual hepatic expression, substrate specificity, and role in procarcinogen activation.
CYP2B6 is a widely expressed human liver microsomal CYP that can contribute to a broad range of drug metabolism and procarcinogen activation reactions and is found to be more sensitive than control cells to the cytotoxicity and mutagenicity of cyclophosphamide, aflatoxin B1, and 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone.

Inhibitory monoclonal antibody to human cytochrome P450 2B6.
This study is a prototype for the use of specific and highly inhibitory MAbs to determine individual P450 function and determines the contribution of 2B6 to the metabolism of its substrates in a human tissue containing multiple P450s. Expand
7-Ethoxycoumarin O-deethylation catalyzed by cytochromes P450 1A2 and 2E1 in human liver microsomes.
Results suggest that P450 1A2 is a low Km enzyme for 7-ethoxycoumarin O-deethylation in human liver microsome, although it has a low Vmax value than P450 2E1. Expand

Human P450s 1A1,6 1A2,7 2A6,8 2C8,9 2C9,9,10 2D67,11,12 and lanosterol 14α-demethylase18 were isolated in this general manner. Expand
A study of the expression of the xenobiotic-metabolising cytochrome P450 proteins and of testosterone metabolism in bovine liver.
Results emanating from this study indicate the presence of proteins in the cattle liver belonging to all the xenobiotic-metabolising families of cytochrome P450. Expand
Concise review of the cytochrome P450s and their roles in toxicology.
The purpose of this current review is to highlight some of the more important mammalian P450s with respect to their expression, inducibility and inhibition character, and substrate preferences, especially as they relate to human toxicology. Expand
