Description

The expression of the rat cytochrome P450 CYP4 family was studied in hepatic tumors. In most of the primary and transplantable hepatic tumors studied, lauric acid omega-hydroxylase activity associated with the CYP4A subfamily enzymes decreased. The expression of CYP4A proteins and mRNAs in these tumors as assessed by Western and Northern blot was undetectable. However, while RNA analysis revealed the absence of 4A1, 4A2, and 4A3 mRNAs, the expression of CYP4 gene(s) was detected. A Uni-ZAP cDNA library was constructed from a
