Information on the mechanism of metal ion inhibition of NADPH-cytochrome P450 reductase is limited. The purpose of the present paper was to elucidate in vitro effect of Hg(+2), Cd(+2), Ni(+2), Cr(+3) and Zn(+2) ions on the purified mullet NADPH-cytochrome P450 reductase. NADPH-cytochrome P450 reductase was purified from detergent-solubilized liver microsomes from leaping mullet (Liza saliens). All of the metal ions caused inhibition of the enzyme activity except Zn(+2). At 50 mu M metal concentration, Hg(+2) inhibited the cytochrome P450 reductase activity completely (100%), while, at the same concentrations, Cd(+2), Cr(+3) and Ni(+2) caused 66%, 65% and 37% inhibition, respectively. At 50 mu M metal concentration, Zn(+2) had no apparent effect on cytochrome P450 reductase activity. The IC(50) values of HgCl(2), CrCl(3), CdCl(2) and NiCl(2) were estimated to be 0.07 mu M, 24 mu M, 33 mu M and 143 mu M, respectively. Of the metal ions tested, Hg(+2) exhibited much higher inhibitory effect at lower concentrations, so it was evidently a more potent inhibitor than the others. All four metal ions displayed noncompetitive type of inhibition mechanism for the purified reductase as analyzed by Dixon plot. K(i) values of Hg(+2), Cr(+3), Cd(+2) and Ni(+2) were calculated from Dixon plots as 0.048 mu M, 18 mu M, 73 mu M and 329 mu M, respectively.

Konus, Metin; UgurIci, Sakine; İşcan, Mesude (2008-10-05)
Abstracts / Toxicology Letters 180S (2008) S32–S246S169Helicoverpa armigera, cotton bollworm, is a polyphagous insect. Itis one of the most important preharvest pests for economicallyimportant crops including cotton, legumes, and vegetables.In this study, midguts ofH. armigeraobtained from Adana,Antalya, C ̧ anakkale and Mardin field populations were used. GSTactivities were determined using 1-chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene asa substrate. Adana and Antalya field populations showed statisti-cally ...

In this study, effects of ultrasound pretreatment on combustion characteristics and elemental composition of municipal sludge were examined for energy-based evaluation of sludge pretreatment. Waste activated sludge (WAS) from a municipal wastewater treatment plant was pretreated with ultrasound at varying durations and was subjected to anaerobic digestion in a biochemical methane potential (BMP) assay. Changes in gas production rates, calorific value (CV), elemental compositions, and ash contents of sludge ...
Effects of diabetes on rabbit kidney and lung CYP2E1 and CYP2B4 expression and drug metabolism and potentiation of carcinogenic activity of N-nitrosodimethylamine in kidney and lung

There are limited number of studies regarding the influence of diabetes on the regulation of cytochrome P450s and associated drug metabolizing enzyme activities especially in extrahepatic tissues such as kidney. However, there is almost no such study in lung. Alloxan-induced diabetes did not change CYP2B4 expression as measured with immunoblot analysis and associated enzyme, benzphetamine N-demethylase, activity in rabbit kidney and lung. Induction of cytochrome P4502E1 by diabetes was identified by immunoc...
Association between polymorphisms of EPHX1 and XRCC1 genes and the risk of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia

Microsomal epoxide hydrolase, EPHX1, plays a central role in the detoxification of potentially genotoxic epoxide intermediates. In this study, we firstly aimed to investigate the relationship between EPHX1 Tyr113His and His139Arg variants, and the risk of incidence of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in Turkish population, comprised of 190 healthy controls and 167 ALL patients. In exon 3 Tyr113His polymorphism, 113His/His homozygous mutant genotype with slow activity was 18.6% in ALL patients an...

Previous studies on the adverse effects of perinatal exposure to ethanol (EtOH) on the developing visual system mainly focused on retinal and optic nerve morphology. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether earlier reported retinal and optic nerve changes are accompanied by anomalies in eye-specific fiber segregation in the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (dLGN). C57BL/6 mice pups were exposed to ethanol by intragastric intubation at either 3 or 4 g/kg from postnatal days (PD) 3-10, the thi...
