Absolute absorption spectra and the spectral interactions of 42 xenobiotics with the midgut microsomal cytochrome P-450 from the tobacco hornworm were studied. The study of type II optical difference spectra using several ligands revealed that the basic requirements for this perturbation are the same as in other animal species, namely, a sterically accessible sp2 or sp3 nitrogen atom. An unusual spectral interaction involving both cytochrome P-450 and cytochrome b5 was observed with n… Expand

An unusual effect of N-octylamine on the cytochrome b5 spectrum of insect and mammalian microsomes.
TLDR
Microsomes from rat and mouse liver, but not those from housefly abdomens, exhibit similar unusual spectral interactions with n-octylamine when supplemented with the soluble factor from the hornworm. Expand
Occurrence and characterization of microsomal cytochrome P-450 in several vertebrate and insect species.
TLDR
Both quantitative and qualitative differences exist between the microsomal cytochrome P-450s of various animal species but differences in enzyme activity cannot be correlated with any single spectral characteristic. Expand
Cytochrome P-450 in insects
Abstract Soluble cytochrome P -450 prepared from the microsomal fraction of abdomen homogenates of an insecticide resistant strain (Rutgers) and a susceptible strain (NAIDM) of the house fly, MuscaExpand
Cytochrome P-450 in insects—V.: Monoterpene induction of cytochrome P-450 and associated monooxygenase activities in the larva of the variegated cutworm Peridroma saucia (Hübner)☆
TLDR
The induction of polysubstrate monooxygenases by these compounds may increase the resistance of the larvae to both host plant allelochemicals and to insecticides in the field. Expand
Microsomal oxidases in midgut and fatbody tissues of a broadly herbivorous insect larva, Spodoptera eridania cramer (Noctuidae)
TLDR
Fatbody and midgut tissues of the southern armyworm, Spodoptera eridania Cramer, were isolated from last (sixth) instar larvae fed semi-synthetic diets containing foreign chemicals for three days and used to prepare microsomal fractions to assess capacity to oxidatively metabolize lipophilic foreign compounds.

Cytochrome P-450 in insects: 2. Multiple forms in the flesh fly (Sarcophaga bullata, Parker), and the blow fly (Phormia regina (Meigen))☆
TLDR
The results indicate that multiple forms of cytochrome P -450 are present in both species but there is insufficient data on which to estimate the number of such forms. Expand
Characterization of Cytochrome P-450 in Studies of Insecticide Resistance
TLDR
In one or two species of insect, such as the house fly, Musca domestica, and the southern armyworm, Spodopteva evidania, P-450 and its related enzymes have been described in some detail. Expand
Effect of n-octylamine on the reduction of mammalian hepatic microsomal cytochrome b5.
TLDR
The experiments reported here demonstrate that low concentrations of n-octylamine cause an increased level of cytochrome b5 reduction by mouse hepatic microsomes and also delays its reoxidation, and suggest that the enzyme(s) involved in the endogenous reduction of NAD(P)+ is not the microsomal alcohol dehydrogenase.

Hepatic microsomal mixed-function oxidase activities in several marine species common to coastal Florida
TLDR
The temperature optimum for in vitro mixed-function oxidase activity was higher in the Florida fish tested than has been reported for cold-water acclimated marine or freshwater fish. Expand
Nutritional effects on the induction of cytochrome P-450 and glutathione transferase in larvae of the tobacco budworm, Heliothis virescens (F.)
TLDR
Wild tomato leaves or 2-tridecanone fed to fifth instar larvae of the tobacco budworm, Heliothis virescens, caused a 2.2 to 3.1-fold increase in gut microsomal cytochrome P-450, and glutathione S-transferase activity decreased during the first 24 hr of exposure, then recovered and increased above control levels after 3 days.

Cytochrome P-450 difference spectra of microsomes from several insecticide-resistant and -susceptible strains of the housefly, Musca domestica L.
TLDR
Cytochrome P-450 difference spectra were obtained with microsomes prepared from several strains of the housefly, Musca domestica, that were susceptible or resistant to insecticides, and no correlation could be made between strains having known high mixed-function oxidase activity and any single cytochromeP-450 spectral characteristic.

Properties of housefly microsomal cytochromes in relation to sex, strain, substrate specificity, and apparent inhibition and induction by synergist and insecticide chemicals.
TLDR
An increased P-450 level is evident 24 hours after topical treatment of another resistant strain, Orlando-DDT, with dieldrin; ethyl isocyanide reveals spectral differences between the normal and induced cytochrome P- 450 with females of this strain. Expand
Spectral interactions of insecticide synergists with microsomal cytochrome P-450 from insecticide-resistant and susceptible house flies
TLDR
The cytochrome P-450 from susceptible house flies, although reported previously not to exhibit type I difference spectra with many xenobiotics, was found to elicit this spectral response with several methylenedioxyphenyl compounds. Expand

Soluble cytochrome P-450 from housefly microsomes. Partial purification and characterization of two hemoprotein forms.
TLDR
Housefly microsomes contain two spectrally different forms of cytochrome P-450 which are fairly stable but can be isolated only when protected by a substrate (phenobarbital) and Detergent-solubilized housefly cytochromes P- 450 andP-450I seem to correspond to either aggregates or oligomeric proteins.

The present paper gives a detailed account of the investigations on rabbit liver microsomes and crude microsomal digests, which have led to postulate the hemoprotein nature of the pigment. Expand
Differences in the cytochrome P-450S from resistant and susceptible house flies.
TLDR
A comparison of difference spectra formed with microsomal cytochrome P-450 from a susceptible and a resistant strain of house flies shows both quantitative and qualitative differences, similar to those observed for the same spectra between normal and phenobarbital- or 3-methylcholanthrene-treated mammals.

TLDR
These results are in disagreement with those of other workers who have concluded that only one of two possible forms of cytochrome P-450 is present in a given strain of the house fly. Expand

TLDR
A comprehensive study of the relationship between chemical structure and binding was made with mouse hepatic microsomes, showing that as substituents are placed closer to this nitrogen, spectral size is either reduced or eliminated. Expand
