Induction of cytochrome P-450 and phosphatidylcholine synthesis by endosulfan in liver of rats: effect of quality of dietary proteins.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Administration of endosulfan significantly increased microsomal protein, cytochrome P-450 content and the activity of aminopyrine N-demethylase. Effect of endosulfan and actinomycin D either alone or together on microsomal protein, cytochrome P-450, NADPH cytochrome c reductase, aniline hydroxylase, aminopyrine N-demethylase, phosphatidylcholine content, incorporation of 3H-choline and 14C-methionine were studied in rats given amino acid deficient and supplemented diets. Administration of endosulfan significantly increased the above parameters in both the dietary groups, whereas administration of actinomycin D did not have any effect in rats fed supplemented diets, however, significant decrease in the PC and the incorporation of choline and methionine into PC of rats fed deficient diet were observed. A positive correlation in the effect of endosulfan on hepatic mixed function oxidase activity and hepatic phosphatidylcholine is observed.
