The elucidation of the individual contributions of the four CYP3A genes to the overall CYP3A activity has been hampered by similarities in their sequence and function. We investigated the expression of CYP3A mRNA species in the liver and in various other tissues using gene-specific TaqMan probes. CYP3A4 transcripts were the most abundant CYP3A mRNA in each of the 63 white European livers tested and accounted on average for 95% of the combined CYP3A mRNA pool. CYP3A5 and CYP3A7 each contributed… CONTINUE READING
