  author={K. 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… Expand
