Immunochemical properties of P-450HFLb purified from human fetal livers were investigated. P-450HFLb cross-reacted with antibodies to rat P-4501A1 but not with antibodies to CYP2A6, CYP2C9, CYP3A7 (P-450HFLa) and rat CYP2B1. In addition, P-450HFLb also cross-reacted with both monospecific antibodies to rat CYP1A1 and CYP1A2. However, P-450HFLb was shown to be an immunochemically distinct form of cytochrome P-450 from P-450PA (human CYP1A2). Immunoblot analysis of human fetal livers with the antibodies to P-450HFLb showed that P-450HFLb was expressed in all fetal livers studied although there appeared to be individual differences in the amounts of P-450HFLb expressed in fetal livers. The formation of mutagens from IQ (but not from AFB1) in fetal liver homogenates was inhibited by the antibodies to P-450HFLb in a dose dependent manner. These results suggest that P-450HFLb may be a form of human cytochrome P-450 classified into CYP1 gene family, and that the cytochrome P-450 is, in part, responsible for the mutagenic activation of IQ in human fetal livers as well as CYP3A7 (P-450HFLa).

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.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

The Tendon Seed Network

Tendons are rich in the extracellular matrix and are abundant throughout the body providing essential roles including structure and mobility. The transcriptome of tendons is being compiled to understand the micro-anatomical functioning of tendons. Discover the latest research pertaining to the Tendon Seed Network here.
