  1. 1. Qualitative and Quantitative Assessment of Cytochromes P450 mRNA in Human : Studies in the Liver, Blood and Gastrointestinal Mucosa

    Författare :Mari Thörn; Lars Lööf; Anders Rane; Ellen Vinge; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Medical sciences; cytochrome P450; CYP1A2; CYP1B1; CYP2E1; CYP3A4; CYP3A5; P-gp; gene expression; RT-PCR; liver; blood; gastrointestinal mucosa; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Drugs and other foreign compounds must often be metabolised before they can be excreted from the body. One enzyme system that is responsible for this is the cytochrome P450 gene family (CYP). LÄS MER

  2. 2. Selective Retention of β-Carbolines and 7,12-Dimethylbenz[a]anthracene in the Brain : Role of Neuromelanin and Cytochrome P450 for Toxicity

    Sammanfattning : The ß-carbolines norharman and harman structurally resemble the synthetic compound 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) that is known for its ability to damage neuromelanin-containing dopaminergic neurons of the substantia nigra and thereby induce parkinsonism. MPTP is, however, not normally present in the environment whereas the ß-carbolines are present in cooked food and tobacco smoke. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Variation and comparison of cytochromes P450 in human liver and blood : With special emphasis on gene expression

    Författare :Niklas Finnström; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Cytochrome P450; CY1A2; CYP1B1; CYP2E1; CYP3A4; gene expression; RTPCR; liver; blood; human; variation.;

    Sammanfattning : The liver is the major drug and xenobiotic metabolising organ, and is the target of many adverse reactions. The main hepatic metabolic enzymes belong to the mono oxygenase enzyme family of cytochromes P450 (CYP). Direct studies of these enzymes in small liver biopsy samples require ultrasensitive methodology. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Pharmacogenetics of drug metabolizing enzymes with special emphasis on Ethiopians

    Författare :Eleni Aklillu; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Drug metabolism; gene duplication; CYP2D6; CYP2C19; CYP2C9; CYP1B1; CYP1A2; genotyping; xanthine oxidase; ultrarapid metabolizers; polymorphism; caffeine; Ets; dietary selection.;

    Sammanfattning : Pharmacogenetics of drug metabolising enzymes has been well studied in Caucasians and Asians, but relatively little in Africans. The aim of this thesis was to investigate the molecular genetics of drug metabolising enzymes, in particular CYP2D6, CYP2C19, CYP2C9, CYP1B1, CYP1A2 and XO, with special emphasis on the Ethiopian population.

  5. 5. Extrahepatic cytochrome P450s - Relation to cancer susceptibility

    Författare :Tove Rylander Rudqvist; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Sammanfattning : Cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes in extrahepatic tissues may play important roles in regulating the capacity of individual cells to metabolize environmental carcinogens and hormones. In this thesis, we characterized the cytochrome P450 profile of the human normal breast and investigated whether polymorphisms in the genes encoding the estrogen metabolizing enzymes CYP1131 and Catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) were associated with breast or endometrial cancer risk.
