Differential induction of cytochromes P450 and cytochrome P450-dependent arachidonic acid metabolism by 3,4,5,3',4'-pentachlorobiphenyl in the rat and the guinea pig.

Differential induction of hepatic cytochromes P450 by 3,4,5,3',4'-pentachlorobiphenyl (PENCB) has been observed in the rat and the guinea pig: (1) in rat and guinea pig, treatment with the chosen dose levels resulted in significant induction of total, carbon monoxide-discernible cytochrome P450 content; the absorption maximum of the CO-adduct of the… CONTINUE READING
