Heteroactivation of cytochrome P450 1A1 by teas and tea polyphenols.


We studied 7-ethoxyresorufin deethylase as an index of cytochrome P4501A1 (CYP1A1) activity in liver microsomes from rats pretreated with 3-methylcholanthrene. The enzyme had complex kinetics compatible with a multisite model. At 1 microM substrate, brewed black, green and white teas had complex effects on enzyme activity consisting of activation at low… (More)
