Metabolism of benzo(a)pyrene by subcellular fractions of rat liver: evidence for similar patterns of cytochrome P-450 in rough and smooth endoplasmic reticulum but not in nuclei and plasma membrane.


Since our earlier work (P. Stasiecki, F. Oesch, G. Bruder, E.D. Jarasch, and W.W. Franke, Eur. J. Cell Biol., 21: 79-92, 1980) had shown that carcinogen-metabolizing monooxygenase activity was present in almost all investigated cellular membranes, the possibility of differential control of the various metabolic pathways in the individual cellular membranes… (More)
