Abstract

Expression of human cytochrome P450 (CYP) genes in human adult and fetal liver were studied using the reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) method. In adult liver mRNA of CYPs 1A1, 1A2, 2A6/2A7, 2B6/2B7, 2C8-19, 2D6, 2E1, 3A3/3A4 and 3A7 were detected while CYPs 2F1 and 4B1 were absent. In fetal liver mRNA of CYPs 2C8, 2D6, 3A3/3A4 and 3A7 were found but all other forms studied were undetectable. The results provide a comprehensive qualitative picture of the expression of CYP genes in families CYP1 through CYP4 in human adult and fetal liver.
