Identification of CYP2E1 in marmoset monkey.


CYP2E1 is the main enzyme responsible for chlorzoxazone 6-hydroxylase activity in human liver. Here, it is shown that marmoset monkey liver microsomal fraction catalyses this reaction at a similar rate and with a similar Km to human liver and that the activity is increased 4-fold in marmosets treated with isoniazid, a known inducer of CYP2E1. This indicates… (More)
