Influence Of Cytochrome P450 Mixed-Function Oxidase Induction On The Acute Toxicity To Rainbow Trout (Salmo Gairdneri) Of Primary Aromatic Amines, Steven P. Bradbury, Joop L. M. Hermens, Steven J. Broderius

Steven P. Bradbury

The influence of enzyme induction on the acute toxicity of aniline and 4-chloroaniline to rainbow trout (Salmo gairdneri) was investigated. For these two xenobiotics, bioactivation reactions are known to occur in mammals. Induction of cytochrome P450 mixed-function oxidase was obtained by intraperitoneal (ip) injection of trout with a mixture of polychlorinated biphenyls (Aroclor 1254). Five days after ip injection with three different doses of Aroclor 1254 (50. 100. and 200 mg/kg). benzo[a)pyrene hydroxylase activity in trout liver microsomes increased five- to sixfold. Cytochrome P450 concentrations in the microsomes were slightly. but significantly. enhanced in two of the ...
