Purification and characterization of constituent testosterone 2 alpha-hydroxylase (cytochrome P450(2)alpha) from mouse liver.


Hepatic microsomal testosterone/androstenedione 2 alpha-hydroxylase (i.e., cytochrome P450(2)alpha) was purified from female CD-1 mice. Protein purification was monitored in eluates from Fractogel, DEAE-sephacel, and hydroxylapatite columns at heme absorbing 417 nm and by cytochrome P450 content, reactivity to a monoclonal antibody against female-specific… (More)
