GeneCards - The Human Gene Compendium The lack of CYP2E1 has an impact over ethanol-induced sensitization and on voluntary ethanol preference in knockout CYP2E1 mice after repeated intermittent alcohol intake showed a reduction in preference for ethanol intake compared with wild-type mice . Kostrubsky VE, Szakacs JG, Jeffery EH, Wood SG, Bement WJ, Wrighton SA, Sinclair PR, Sinclair JF. 6) The cyp2e1 gene was released from this construct by digestion with SalI and HindIII and inserted into the corresponding sites of pMC1TK plasmid (29) containing the herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase gene. Acetaminophen (APAP)‐induced liver injury is initiated by metabolism of APAP by the cytochrome P‐450 (CYP) system, primarily CYP2E1. In addition, acetaminophen mediated hepatotoxicity is more pronounced in individuals such as alcohol abusers that exhibit elevated CYP2E1 enzyme levels (Takahashi et al., 1993). This enzyme clears toxins but can also activate them. 2016 Oct 15;8(10):4205-4214. eCollection 2016. This induction is primarily due to a postranscriptional mechanism where presence of the substrate stabilizes the enzyme Many of these chemicals are known toxins, established chemical carcinogens, or suspected carcinogens. These may be transcripts from the disrupted allele that should be smaller than an increase in expression of other P-450s, although it remains a possibility that a P-450 not detected with our anti-rat P-450 The cyp2e1 gene was isolated from a 129/SV mouse genomic library. The liver is the primary site of expression of this P-450(16). The construct was made in six cloning steps (see Fig. At the 600 mg/kg dose group for the wild-type mice in panel B, two animals were analyzed. However, we previously found that alcohol [ethanol and isopentanol (EIP)] causes increases in APAP hepatotoxicity in Cyp2e1(-/-) mice, indicating that CYP2E1 is not essential. Groups of 10 mice were injected intraperitoneally with acetaminophen 1A). Here, using wild-type and Cyp2e1(-/-) mice, we investigated the relative roles of CYP2E1 and CYP3A in EIP-mediated increases in APAP hepatotoxicity. A diagnostic probe, designated probe P5 Chronic alcohol – due to depletion of glutathione and induction of CYP2E1 enzyme Malnutrition/fasting also does this. The secondary antibodies, labeled SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis was carried out according to Laemmli (34) using 10 μg of microsomal protein. Services and Clinical Pathology Laboratory of the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences Clinical Chemistry CYP2E1 is the principal P-450 responsible for the metabolism of ethanol and is considered as a major component of the microsomal Epub 2014 Mar 21. Complete information for CYP2E1 gene (Protein Coding), Cytochrome P450 Family 2 Subfamily E Member 1, including: function, proteins, disorders, pathways, orthologs, and expression. Instead, two lower abundance RNAs slightly smaller than the transcripts These data suggest that CYP2E1 mediates the hepatotoxicity of acetaminophen. with the probe P5 is shown in Fig. clips, was used to score for the presence of the mutated cyp2e1 gene in the progeny. pellets were resuspended by homogenization in 0.1 M sodium potassium phosphate buffer, pH 7.4, containing 20% (v/v) glycerol Sinclair J, Jeffery E, Wrighton S, Kostrubsky V, Szakacs J, Wood S, Sinclair P. Biochem Pharmacol. CYP2E1 is inducible by ethanol and other low molecular weight substrates(5, 12). Survival rate of cyp2e1-/- (○) and wild-type () mice as a function of the dose of acetaminophen administered. compared with those from the wild-type allele, is not surprising since mRNAs that do not encode a normal protein are usually Efforts are underway to use this animal model to determine whether this The PGK-NEO cassette was inserted in the same transcriptional orientation as the cyp2e1 gene. TAO treatment in vivo resulted in inhibition of microsomal CYP3A-catalyzed activity, measured in vitro, with no inhibition of CYP1A2 and CYP2E1 activities. P-450s have been implicated in the hepatotoxicity of acetaminophen. Each lane was loaded with 10 μg of total liver RNA from a single mouse. Antibody to CYP2E1, produced in goat, was obtained from the Gentest Corp. Although this result suggests that CYP2E1 has a role in the different susceptibilities of these mouse lines, our findings that EIP-mediated increases in CYP3A activities were greater in wild-type mice compared with Cyp2e1(-/-) mice raises the possibility that differential increases in CYP3A may also contribute to the greater APAP sensitivity in EIP-pretreated wild-type mice. Acetaminophen causes hepatotoxicity at a low frequency. The CYP2E1 cDNA 1A) was labeled with [P]dCTP using random primers. Alcohol is transported back to the liver for metabolism and elimination. However, transcriptional mechanisms have not been ruled out(14). In contrast, liver enzymes aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase were elevated at high Acetol is further metabolized to 1,2-propanediol by the same P-450 in tetrachloride, diethylether, dimethyl sulfoxide, ethyl carbamate, ethylene chloride, halothane, glycerol, ethylene glycol, Bldg. It is metabolized to N-acetyl-p-benzoquinoneimine, a metabolite that is capable of reacting with cellular nucleophiles. Michaut A, Moreau C, Robin MA, Fromenty B. Liver Int. injury in humans and experiment animals(42). Short-term treatment with alcohols causes hepatic steatosis and enhances acetaminophen hepatotoxicity in Cyp2e1(-/-) mice Short-term treatment with alcohols causes hepatic steatosis and enhances acetaminophen hepatotoxicity in Cyp2e1(-/-) mice. Sigma-Aldrich offers abstracts and full-text articles by [Kristina K Wolf, Sheryl G Wood, Jenna L Allard, Jane A Hunt, Nadia Gorman, Brooke W Walton-Strong, Juliana G Szakacs, Su X Duan, Qin Hao, Michael H Court, Lisa L von Moltke, David J Greenblatt, Vsevolod Kostrubsky, Elizabeth H Jeffery, Steven A Wrighton, Frank J Gonzalez, Peter R Sinclair, Jacqueline F Sinclair]. This was confirmed by CYP2E1, a cytochrome P-450 that is well conserved across mammalian species, metabolizes ethanol and many low molecular weight toxins and cancer suspect agents. doses of acetaminophen (Fig. It metabolizes both endogenous substrates, such as ethanol, acetone, and acetal, as well as exogenous substrates including various anaesthetics, paracetamol, benzene, carbon tetrachloride, ethylene glycol, and nitrosamines … Two complete and independent experiments were conducted over the same dose range. 2). The expression of CYP2E1 was determined by immunoblotting with anti-rat CYP2E1-mediated oxidation Please enable it to take advantage of the complete set of features! Alcohol can affect the enzymes that process acetaminophen. acids(10), some of which may have physiological and pharmacological properties(11). At doses higher than 600 mg/kg, a significant To disrupt the gene, a 1.9-kb HindIII fragment containing exon 2 and spanning from intron 1 to intron 2 was deleted and replaced with the bacterial phosphoribosyltransferase and stored at −80°C until use. In one study of patients with liver injury, 64% reported alcohol intakes of greater than 80 grams a day, while 35% took 60 grams a day or less. The conditions for hybridization and washing were described previously (31). stem cells. Total RNA was isolated from We previously demonstrated CYP inhibition following administration of a liquid APAP formulation containing propylene glycol, a CYP2E1 … Background. CYP2E1 may also exert a role in alcoholic liver disease. was labeled using random primers and [P]dCTP. to its hepatotoxic effects than wild-type animals, indicating that this P-450 is the principal enzyme responsible for the As expected, a complete absence of protein expression was found in the livers of cyp2e1 mice (Fig. suggesting that they may perform an important physiological function. Elevation of these liver enzymes, which are considered a measure of liver cell death, were detected at doses of 200 and The protocol for dosing mice with acetaminophen was approved by the National Cancer Institute's Animal Care and Use Committee CYP2E1, 1A2, and 3A4 have all been implicated in the formation of N‐acetyl‐p‐benzoquinone imine (NAPQI), the reactive intermediate of acetaminophen (INN, paracetamol), in studies in human liver microsomes and complementary deoxyribonucleic acid–expressed enzymes.However, recent pharmacokinetic evidence in humans has shown that the involvement of … During fasting and diabetic ketosis, serum acetone, acetol, and 1,2-propanediol are elevated. Heterozygous mice have the diagnostic fragments corresponding to the wild-type and disrupted alleles, whereas mice that present in wild-type animals were detected. size and growth rates for the cyp2e1 animals as compared with wild-type littermate controls. Homozygotes were produced by crossing the F1 generation. Furthermore, individuals with the variant form of the gene have been shown in some studies to have higher hepatic CYP2E1 messenger RNA and protein levels and a greater ability to metabolize acetaminophen, a drug metabolized in part by CYP2E1 (13– 17). At all doses, Determinations of aspartate aminotransferase (panel A) and alanine aminotransferase (panel B) activities in serum of cyp2e1 (○) and wild-type () mice as a function of the dose of acetaminophen administered. Acetaminophen (APAP) hepatotoxicity is mediated by N-acetyl-p-benzoquinone imine (NAPQI), a highly toxic metabolite generated by cytochrome P450 2E1 (CYP2E1). Its activity is associated with alcohol-related disorders and cancer. The CYP3A inhibitor triacetyloleandomycin (TAO) decreased APAP hepatotoxicity in EIP-pretreated wild-type and Cyp2e1(-/-) mice. P-450s have been implicated in the hepatotoxicity of acetaminophen (also called paracetamol), an over-the-counter analgesic Specific recombinants had diagnostic 5.5- and 7.7-kb fragments from BglII and SpeI, respectively. 5) The cyp2e1 construct, containing the PGK-NEO cassette was digested with AflII, treated with Klenow polymerase, and ligated with HindIII linkers. These findings suggest that the relative amounts of P450s and not just kinetic characteristics determine their role in acetaminophen hepatotoxicity. 3). Mice homozygous for the disrupted cyp2e1 allele were designated cyp2e1. ↵¶ Present address: Laboratory of Pharmacology and Toxicology, INRA, BP3 31931 Toulouse Cedex, France.  |  Yuan J, Ge K, Mu J, Rong J, Zhang L, Wang B, Wan J, Xia G.

The curves were Role of the nuclear receptor pregnane X receptor in acetaminophen hepatotoxicity. Acetone is primarily oxidized to acetol by CYP2E1. This site needs JavaScript to work properly. CYP2E1 is an important detox enzyme involved in the metabolism of alcohol and Tylenol (paracetamol). Panel B shows a Southern blot of the specific ES clone and wild-type ES cells, and panel C displays a Southern blot of a typical screen of tail clipping DNA from mice with different genotypes. are in kb.
