Identification of the hepatic cytochrome P-450 isozymes induced and decreased by picloram.


Microsomes from male rats treated with picloram (100 mg/kg/day) for 7 days showed a 48% decrease in 16 alpha-hydroxylase activity when incubated with (4-14C) androstenedione. These data are consistent with the assertion that picloram decreases the titer of hepatic male specific cytochrome P-450h. Several lines of evidence suggested that picloram is an… (More)
