Cytochrome P-450 in human liver microsomes: high-performance liquid chromatographic isolation of three forms and their characterization

Journal of Biochemistry

Three forms of cytochrome P-450, designated as P-450-HM1, P-450-HM2, and P-450-HM3, were isolated from human liver microsomes using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) techniques. Each purified preparation showed a single protein band on sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE). From the results of SDS-PAGE, the molecular weights of P-450-HM1, P-450-HM2, and P-450-HM3 were estimated to be 51,000, 54,000, and 52,000, respectively. The oxidized absolute spectra of these three forms of cytochrome P-450 showed Soret absorption peaks at around 417 nm, indicating that these forms were in the low spin state. In a reconstituted system, P-450-HM1 showed the highest catalytic activities of nifedipine and (S)- or (R)-nilvadipine oxidases. The same form showed higher activities of testosterone 6 beta-hydroxylase and progesterone 6 beta- and 16 alpha-hydroxylases. P-450-HM2 showed high N-demethylase activities for benz-phetamine and aminopyrine, and also showed the highest activity of testosterone 16 beta-hydroxylase among the three forms, while it did not show detectable activities of testosterone 6 beta-hydroxylase and progesterone 6 beta- and 16 alpha-hydroxylases. Anti-P-450-HM1 immunoglobulin G (Ig...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.
