Kinetics of benzo(a)pyrene hydroxylation at varying concentrations of NADPH and NADH in liver microsomes of nontreated and beta-naphthoflavone-treated C57BL/2 and DBA/2 mice.


The biphasic kinetics of hydroxylation of benzo(a)pyrene (B(a)P) dependent on the concentration of either NADPH or NADH has been observed in DBA/2 (AhdAhd) but not in C57BL/6 (AhbAhb) beta-naphthoflavone-treated mice. On the other hand, in nontreated mice, this biphasic kinetics has been observed in both strains of mice. This shows that characteristics of… (More)
