The Detoxification Enzyme Systems by DeAnn

  title={The Detoxification Enzyme Systems by DeAnn},
  author={J. Li{\vs}ka},
The human body is exposed to a wide array of xenobiotics in one’s lifetime, from food components to environmental toxins to pharmaceuticals, and has developed complex enzymatic mechanisms to detoxify these substances. These mechanisms exhibit significant individual variability, and are affected by environment, lifestyle, and genetic influences. The scientific literature suggests an association between impaired detoxification and certain diseases, including cancer, Parkinson’s disease… Expand

Relevance of induction of human drug-metabolizing enzymes: pharmacological and toxicological implications.
The clinical impact of enzyme induction will depend upon the number of different enzyme isoforms affected and the magnitude of the inductive response within an individual, and also on the therapeutic indices of the affected substrates, which may be isozyme selective. Expand
Toxicological implications of polymorphic drug metabolism.
A new genetic polymorphism of drug metabolism has been described and it promises to provide a better understanding of inter-individual variability in the metabolic handling of, and responsiveness to, drugs and toxic substances. Expand
Influence of nutrients and other dietary materials on cytochrome P-450 enzymes.

  • 1995
The cytochrome P-450 (P-450) enzymes are collectively responsible for the bulk of oxidation of xenobiotic chemicals, including drugs, pesticides, and carcinogens, which can result in increased or decreased toxicity, depending on the situation. Expand
Modulation of phase I and phase II xenobiotic-metabolizing enzymes by selenium-enriched garlic in rats.
The data seem to suggest that an increased detoxification of carcinogen via the phase II conjugating enzymes might represent a mechanism of tumor suppression by Se-garlic. Expand
Publisher Summary This chapter focuses on the history of the discovery of the conjugation mechanisms. The majority of the biochemical reactions called conjugations were discovered during the 19thExpand
Localization Of Cytochromes P450 In Human Tissues: Implications for chemical toxicity
This work has used a histological approach to study the distribution of individual P450s in human and rabbit gastro‐intestinal tissues and focused primarily on P450 enzymes of importance in the metabolism of carcinogens, namely CYP1A1, CYP3A4/3A5 and CYP4B1. Expand
Mechanism of action of dietary chemoprotective agents in rat liver: induction of phase I and II drug metabolizing enzymes and aflatoxin B1 metabolism.
These studies indicate the relative contributions of phase I and II metabolism in the overall protective effect in rat, and care should be taken that a similar balance is achieved in man, and that relevant enzymes or iso forms are induced. Expand
Association of slow acetylator genotype for N-acetyltransferase 2 with familial Parkinson's disease
An association between the slow acetylator genotype for N-acetyltransferase 2 and familial PD is found, which could lead to impaired ability of patients with familial PD to handle neurotoxic substances. Expand
Human AH locus polymorphism and cancer: inducibility of CYP1A1 and other genes by combustion products and dioxin.
Isolation and sequencing of the human Ah receptor cDNA, and the subsequent screening of populations for polymorphisms, hold great promise for predicting interindividual risk of cancer caused by smoking and other environmental pollutants. Expand

  • 1990
The molecular mechanisms of 3 genetic polymorphisms of drug metabolism have been studied at the level of enzyme activity, enzyme protein and RNA/DNA and it was observed that immunoreactive N‐acetyltransferase is decreased or undetectable in liver of “slow acetylators”. Expand
