Cytochromes P450 (CYPs) are important enzymes involved in the regulation of hormone synthesis and in the detoxification and/or activation of xenobiotics. CYPs are found in virtually all organisms, from archae, and eubacteria to eukaryota. A number of endocrine disruptors are suspected of exerting their effects through disruption of normal CYP function. Consequently, alterations in steroid hormone metabolism through changes in CYP could provide an important tool to evaluate potential effects of endocrine disruptors. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential effects of the known CYP modulator, benzo(a)pyrene (B(a)P), on the testosterone metabolism in the invertebrate Neomysis integer (Crustacea; Mysidacea). N. integer were exposed for 96h to 0.43, 2.39, 28.83, 339.00 and 1682.86μg B(a)P L-1 and a solventcontrol, and subsequently their ability to metabolize testosterone was assessed. Identification and quantification of the produced phase I and phase II testosterone metabolites was performed using liquid chromatography coupled with multiple mass spectrometry (LC-MS2). Significant changes were observed in the overall ability of N. integer to metabolize testosterone when exposed to 2.39, 28.83, 339.00 and 1682.86μg B(a)P L-1 as compared to the control animals.

A quantitative screen for metabolic enzyme structures reveals patterns of assembly across the yeast metabolic network Noree, Chalongrat; Begovich, Kyle; Samilo, Dane; Broyer, Risa; Monfort, Elena; Wilhelm, James E. (American Society for Cell Biology, 2019-09-30)Despite the proliferation of proteins that can form filaments or phase-separated condensates, it remains unclear how this behavior is distributed over biological networks. We have found that 60 of the 440 yeast metabolic ...
Benz(a)anthracene in benthic marine environments : bioavailability, metabolism, and physiological effects on the polychaete Neries virens McElroy, Anne Elizabeth (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1985-02)The fate of [14C- 121 benz(a)anthracene (BA) was followed in benthic microcosm experiments in the presence and absence of the polychaete Nereis virens. In concert with chemical analysis of BA and its metabolites in all ...
The metabolic response of pteropods to acidification reflects natural CO2-exposure in oxygen minimum zones Maas, Amy E.; Wishner, Karen F.; Seibel, Brad A. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2012-02-15)Shelled pteropods (Thecosomata) are a group of holoplanktonic mollusks that are believed to be especially sensitive to ocean acidification because their aragonitic shells are highly soluble. Despite this concern, there is ...
