BACKGROUND: Discovering the association between genetic variations of metabolizing enzymes with idiopathic diseases such as ulcerative colitis (UC) may not only be an auxiliary agent in diagnosis but also could be an effective pharmacotherapy for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The aim of the present case-control study was to determine the association of cytochrome P450 2D6 (CYP2D6 *4), N-acteyltransferase-2 (NAT2*7) and multidrug resistance 1 (MDR1) 3435 C/T genotypes with UC susceptibility and thiopurine methyltransferase (TPMT) enzyme activity...

The cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4) is the most abundant CYP450 enzyme involved in the metabolism of endogenous products and xenobiotics, including prescription drugs and herbals. Modulation of hepatic CYP3A4 gene expression via nuclear receptors, like pregnane X receptor (PXR), is a major cause of adverse effects like drug-unresponsiveness and toxicity. In the present study, ethanol extracts of 58 medicinal plants, belonging to 27 families, were evaluated for potential activities in CYP3A4 induction in HepG2 cells by reporter gene assay...

Cytochrome CYP450 epoxygenases catalyze the epoxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids including arachidonic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid, and docosahexaenoic acid. The arachidonic acid-derived products are potent pro-angiogenic lipids and promote tumor development and growth. On the other hand, eicosapentaenoic acid- and docosahexaenoic acid-derived products inhibit angiogenesis and play a protective role in certain pathological conditions including cancer. Increased expression of CYP2C epoxygenases, together with increased levels of their arachidonic acid-derived products, is often observed in tumors and tumor-associated vasculature, making these enzymes an ideal target for anti-cancer therapies...

Deltamethrin resistance in Laodelphax striatellus had been associated with its oxidative detoxification by overexpression of four cytochrome P450 monooxygenases like CYP353D1v2, CYP6FU1, CYP6AY3v2, and CYP439A1v3. The first three P450s have been validated for insecticide-metabolizing capability and only CYP6FU1 was found to degrade deltamethrin. In this study, an investigation was conducted to confirm the capability of CYP439A1v3 to degrade deltamethrin. The CYP439A1v3 was first expressed in Sf9 cell line and its recombinant enzyme was tested for metabolic activity against different insecticides using substrate depletion assay combined with metabolite identification...

Heme is central to functions of many biologically important enzymes (hemoproteins). It is an assembly of four porphyrin rings joined through methylene bridges with a central Fe (II). Heme is present in all cells, and its synthesis and degradation balance its amount in the cell. The deregulations of heme networks and incorporation in hemoproteins lead to pathogenic state. This article addresses the detailed structure, biosynthesis, degradation, and transportation associated afflictions to heme. The article is followed by its roles in various diseased conditions where it is produced mainly as the cause of increased hemolysis...

BACKGROUND: In polypharmacy patients, medication therapy management (MTM) services provide a comprehensive review of current medications and future treatment goals. Pharmacogenetics (PGx) may further optimize the identification of potential drug therapy problems (DTPs); however, the clinical utility of PGx information with a clinical decision support tool (CDST) in an MTM setting in identifying DTPs has not been systematically assessed. OBJECTIVE: To assess the clinical utility of an MTM service enhanced by pharmacogenetic test results and a clinical decision support tool...

Polygoni Multiflori Radix (PMR) has been a reputable tonifying traditional Chinese medicine for a long history. However, clinical side effects regarding its idiosyncratic hepatotoxicity are occasionally reported. The containing anthraquinones, particularly emodin, could cause liver injury in both in vitro and in vivo experiments. It is well-known that some compounds could influence other compounds' pharmacokinetic parameters significantly. In this work, the influence of trans-2,3,5,4'-tetrahydroxystilbene-2-O-β-d-glucopyranoside (TSG) on the pharmacokinetic behavior of emodin in rats was evaluated by an ultra-high performance liquid chromatography/triple quadrupole mass spectrometry (UHPLC/MS-MS) approach...

The human intestinal mucosa is a critical site for absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME)/Tox studies in drug development and is difficult to recapitulate in vitro. Using bioprinting, we generated three-dimensional (3D) intestinal tissue composed of human primary intestinal epithelial cells and myofibroblasts with architecture and function to model the native intestine. The 3D intestinal tissue demonstrates a polarized epithelium with tight junctions and specialized epithelial cell types and expresses functional and inducible CYP450 enzymes...

Digeda-4 decoction is a traditional Mongolian medicine; its effects on cytochrome (CYP) enzymes are still unclear. CYP450 isoenzymes are the main drug metabolic enzymes, and their activities may be induced or inhibited by certain drugs, which lead to drug interactions in clinical use. Effects of Digeda-4 decoction on the activities of CYP450 subtype enzymes CYP1A2, CYP2C9, CYP2E1, CYP2C19, and CYP3A4 in rats were studied by cocktail method, and the pharmacokinetic parameters of five specific probe drugs (theophylline, tolbutamide, chlorzoxazone, omeprazole, and midazolam) were calculated by DAS software; changes of parameters can be used to evaluate the effects of Digeda-4 decoction on enzyme activities...

Background: Opioids are widely used for chronic low back pain (CLBP); however, it is still unclear how to predict their effectiveness and safety. Codeine, tramadol and oxycodone are metabolized by CYP/CYP450 2D6 (CYP2D6), a highly polymorphic enzyme linked to allele-specific related differences in metabolic activity. Purpose: CYP2D6 genetic polymorphisms could potentially help to predict the effectiveness and safety of opioid-based drugs in clinical practice, especially in the treatment of CLBP...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Cyp4a14 is a member of cytochrome P450 (Cyp450) enzyme superfamily that possesses NADPH monooxygenase activity, which catalyzes omega-hydroxylation of medium-chain fatty acids and arachidonic acid. Study suggests that down-regulation of Cyp4a14 has an anti-inflammatory response in intestine. The present study was to test the function of Cyp4a14 in dextran sulfate sodium (DSS)-induced colitis. METHODS: Female Cyp4a14-knockout (KO) and wild-type (WT) mice were treated with DSS for 6 days to induce colitis...

Obesity is often accompanied by metabolic and haemodynamic disorders such as hypertension, even during childhood. Arachidonic acid (AA) is metabolized by cytochrome P450 (CYP450) enzymes to epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs) and 20-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (20-HETE), vasoactive and natriuretic metabolites that contribute to blood pressure (BP) regulation. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids may compete with AA for CYP450-dependent bioactive lipid mediator formation...

Cadmium (Cd) is a heavy metal in natural environment and has extreme toxicity. Selenium (Se) has protective effect against heavy metal-induced injury or oxidative stress. Cytochrome P450 (CYP450) enzymes are a family of hemoproteins primarily responsible for detoxification functions. In order to investigate whether CYP450 is related to the damage of livers caused by Cd exposure, we chose forty-eight 28-day-old healthy Hailan cocks for four groups: control group, Se group, Cd group, and Se + Cd group. After 90-day treatment, euthanized for experiment...
