Genetic differences between C57BL/6 and DBA/2 mice in the inductions of UDP-glucuronyl transferases for 3-hydroxybenzo(a)pyrene, p-nitrophenol, and bilirubin by 3-methylcholanthrene

In C57BL/6 mice, aryl hydrocarbon hydroxylase (AHH) increased 1 day after treatment with 3-methylcholanthrene, and induction of UDP-glucuronyl transferases for 3-hydroxybenzo(a)pyrene, p-nitrophenol and bilirubin in the liver microsomes was observed 2 to 5 days later. In DBA/2 mice, neither AHH nor transferase activities were influenced by 3-methylcholanthrene. These results suggest that induction of activating and detoxicating enzymes is genetically linked.

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.
