Disparity in holoprotein/apoprotein ratios of different standards used for immunoquantification of hepatic cytochrome P450 enzymes.

An analysis of reported hepatic abundances of CYP3A4 and 3A5 indicated that values determined by immunoquantification using commercially available, unpurified recombinant enzymes as standards are significantly lower than those determined using purified enzymes or human liver microsomes characterized with lysosomal peptides (CYP3A4: mean 45 versus 121 pmol/mg protein, p < 0.01; CYP3A5: mean 28 versus […]
