The inactivation by 21-chlorinated steroids of rat liver cytochromes P-450 involved in the hydroxylation of progesterone and androstenedione has been investigated. Preincubation of intact liver microsomes from phenobarbital-treated rats with 21-chloropregnenolone, 21,21-dichloropregnenolone, or 21,21-dichloroprogesterone in the presence of NADPH caused a time-dependent decrease in progesterone 21-hydroxylase and in progesterone or androstenedione 6 beta-hydroxylase activity but had negligible… Expand
Chick embryo liver microsomal steroid hydroxylations: induction by dexamethasone, phenobarbital, and glutethimide and inactivation following the in ovo administration of porphyrinogenic compounds.
It is suggested that PG and AD 6 beta-hydroxylases may serve as diagnostic markers for a P450 3A-like isozyme in the chick embryo, and that this isozyme is one of the targets for inactivation by 4-ethyl DDC and TTMS. Expand
[44] P450-catalyzed steroid hydroxylation: Assay and product identification by thin-layer chromatography
Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the P450-catalyzed steroid hydroxylation. Steroid hydroxylation reactions catalyzed by eukaryotic cytochrome P450 enzymes serve numerous physiologicalExpand
Cytochrome P450 and its interactions with the heme biosynthetic pathway
An important factor in disruption of hepatic heme biosynthesis by porphyrinogenic drugs appears to be interaction with one or several cytochrome P450 isozymes. Clarification of the nature of theExpand
Modulation of the expression on constitutive rat hepatic cytochrome P450 isozymes by 5-fluorouracil.
Five-fluorouracil appears to modulate the expression of constitutive CYP isozymes in the liver of male rats and the modulation of the catalytic activity of CYP2C11 and CYP3A by 5FU appears to be due to changes in theexpression of the corresponding proteins. Expand
Differential inhibition of hepatic cytochromes P-450 by cimetidine in adult male rats
The cytochrome P-450 enzymes are a family of hemoproteins that play an important role in drug metabolism in man and animals. Cimetidine is a histamine H2-receptor antagonist used in the treatment ofExpand
Mechanism of biochemical action of substituted 4-methylbenzopyran-2-ones. Part 7: Assay and characterization of 7,8-diacetoxy-4-methylcoumarin:protein transacetylase from rat liver microsomes based on the irreversible inhibition of cytosolic glutathione S-transferase.
Evidence is documented for the existence of a transacetylase in liver microsomes that catalyses the transfer of acetyl groups from 7,8-diacetoxy-4-methylcoumarin (DAMC) to glutathione S-transferase (GST), either purified or present in cytosol leading to the irreversible inhibition of GST. Expand
Mechanism-based inactivation of cytochrome P450 2B6 by a novel terminal acetylene inhibitor.
In addition to 2B6, p450 2C forms were also found to be sensitive to TA-mediated inactivation, suggesting that subtle changes in the O-alkyl chain of the parent may be critical for the selectivity of enzyme inactivation. Expand
The role of cytochrome 2B1 substrate recognition site residues 115, 294, 297, 298, and 362 in the oxidation of steroids and 7-alkoxycoumarins.
The results from this study illustrate the conservation of functionally important residues across P450 subfamilies and families. Expand

Seven hepatic P450s have been purified in enzymatically active form and characterized with respect to their substrate specificities, immunochemical properties, and regulation, and many purified family P450II proteins exhibit unique patterns of hydroxylated metabolites when incubated with steroid substrates such as testosterone, androstenedione, and progesterone.

Prevention of benzene-induced genotoxicity in bone marrow and lung cells: superiority of polyphenolic acetates to polyphenols
Results substantiated that inhibition of Cyt-P450-linked MFOs and benzene-induced genotoxicity in bone marrow and lung cells by polyphenolic acetates are mediated by the action of calreticulin transacetylase that catalyzes the acetylation of concerned proteins. Expand
