Recombinant Hep G2 cells that express alcohol dehydrogenase and cytochrome P450 2E1 as a model of ethanol-elicited cytotoxicity.


HepG2 cells were transfected with recombinant plasmids, one carrying the murine alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) gene and the other containing the gene encoding human cytochrome P450 2E1 (CYP2E1). One of recombinant clones called VL-17A exhibited ADH and CYP2E1 specific activities comparable to those in isolated rat hepatocytes. VL-17A cells oxidized ethanol and… (More)
