Ligand Complexes Generated during Cytochrome P-450 Dependent Metabolism

  • Michael R. Franklin
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB)


The characterization and quantitation of cytochrome P-450 as it is known to much of the scientific community, depends not on its enzymic activity, but on the interaction of the heme iron with a ligand (Omura and Sato 1964).


Ligand Complex Allyl Alcohol Hepatic Microsome Metha None Piperonyl Butoxide
