Isolation of cDNAs coding for three different forms of liver microsomal cytochrome P-450 from polychlorinated biphenyl-treated beagle dogs.

Three different cDNA clones, namely DM1-1, Dah1, and Dah2, encoding hepatic cytochrome P-450, were isolated from a cDNA library in lambda gt11 constructed from liver RNA of polychlorinated biphenyl-treated beagle dogs. DM1-1 was 1857 base pairs (bp) long and encoded a polypeptide of 457 residues. Dah1 was 2394 bp long and contained an entire coding region for 524 amino acid residues. In addition, Dah2 was 1623 bp long and had an open reading frame consisting of 503 amino acid residues, although it lacked the translational initiation codon. Judging from the similarity of the nucleotide and amino acid sequences, forms of cytochrome P-450 encoded by DM1-1, Dah1, and Dah2 were judged to belong to the P450IIC, P450IA1, and P450IA2 subfamilies, respectively. Northern blot analysis of RNA from various tissues, using the specific 3' noncoding regions of Dah1 and Dah2 as probes, indicated that mRNAs for P-450(Dah1) and P-450(Dah2) were not detectable in tissues from untreated dogs, except for P-450(Dah2) in livers. Polychlorinated biphenyl induced both mRNAs in liver, kidney, and lung, especially in the kidney.[1]
