Quantitation of cytochrome P450 mRNAs in patients with suspected liver diseases as assessed by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction.

Abstract

The cytochrome P450 system (CYP) is vital for the oxidation and detoxification of numerous drugs and other xenobiotics in the liver. Many of the CYP enzymes are polymorphically expressed and may be induced or inhibited by xenobiotics including drugs and alcohol. The measurement of gene expression is thus important in studies of the mechanisms of interaction… (More)
