Interleukin 1 beta and interleukin 6 repress clofibric acid induction of different P450 isoforms in cultured foetal rat hepatocytes

Xenobiotica; the Fate of Foreign Compounds in Biological Systems
J H ParmentierP Kremers


1. Expression of various P450 subfamilies (1A, 2A, 2B, 2C, 3A) have been studied in cultured foetal rat hepatocytes after treatment with clofibric acid, a peroxisome proliferator and prototypic CYP4A inducer in vitro. Ethoxyresorufin O-deethylase activity (EROD, a CYP1A-related activity) as well as 7 alpha-, 16 alpha-, 2 alpha- and 6 beta-testosterone hydroxylase activities (CYP2A, 2B, 2C11 and 3A respectively) were determined during culture. Levels of the corresponding P450 apoproteins were measured by Western blotting. 2. Clofibric acid was able to induce all the P450-dependent activities studied. In most cases this induction required the additional presence of dexamethasone, an agent which promotes differentiation and favours long-term maintenance of the hepatocytes. 3. The major pro-inflammatory cytokines, IL-1 beta and IL-6, decrease the levels of the clofibric acid-induced P450 isoforms, except CYP1A, which was insensitive to IL-6, previous studies having shown that IL-1 beta represses lauric acid 12-hydroxylase activity after induction by clofibric acid. The effects of these cytokines were clearly dose- and time-dependent. The decrease in enzyme activity correlated with a decrease in apoprotein content. 4. The ability of...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.

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.
