Intestinal microsomal drug metabolism. A comparison of rat and guinea-pig enzymes, and of rat crypt and villous tip cell enzymes



Intestinal microsomal drug metabolism. A comparison of rat and guinea-pig enzymes, and of rat crypt and villous tip cell enzymes



Biochemical Pharmacology 30(17): 2415-2420



A comparison was made of the properties of microsomes prepared from the small intestines of guinea pigs and rats. The NADPH2 cytochrome c reductase activity and cytochrome b5 and cytochrome P-450 content in rat microsomes was 42, 47 and 64% of that in the guinea pig, ethoxycoumarin deethylase activity was comparable, while arylesterase activity was twice as active in rats as guinea pigs. Investigation of the distribution of these and other parameters in rat intestinal epithelia revealed a preferential location of cytochrome P-450 in the villous tip while other parameters showed a more similar distribution between microsomes prepared from the villous tip and crypt.
