Vivarin ® Induction of Expression of Cyp 6 a 8 in Drosophila melanogaster larvae

  title={Vivarin {\textregistered} Induction of Expression of Cyp 6 a 8 in Drosophila melanogaster larvae},
  author={Katherine Elizabeth Fleming},
Cytochrome P450 monooxygenases or CYPs are an important superfamily of enzymes that are involved in the metabolism of many endogenous and xenobiotic (foreign) compounds. In Drosophila melanogaster, CYPs have been implicated in insecticide-resistance mechanisms. Studying the regulation of CYP genes in Drosophila melanogaster is important because it can illuminate the mechanisms by which resistant insects detoxify insecticides. In Drosophila, the Cyp6a8 gene shows higher level of expression in…

Cytochromes P450 of insects: the tip of the iceberg.
The lessons the authors have learned from the study of individual insect P450s, including their roles in insecticide resistance, plant-insect interactions and insect physiology are summarized.
Regulation of cytochrome P450 genes: molecular mechanisms.
A review of recent developments on the molecular mechanisms of P450 gene control in bacteria, yeast, fish, chickens, rats, mice, rabbits and humans.
Regulation of Cytochrome P450 enzymes in H4IIE
The P450 Enzyme activity induction was used as end point for dioxin-like compounds screening in different relevant matrices using micro-EROD bioassay and this step was combined with recombinant yeast assay for the detection of the metabolites of this compound.
Human drug-metabolizing enzyme polymorphisms: effects on risk of toxicity and cancer.
If unequivocal biomarkers of genetic susceptibility to cancer and toxicity can be developed successfully, then identification of individuals at increased risk would be very helpful in the fields of public health and preventive medicine.
