PRIMACYT Subcellular Fractions - Mouse

Your Tool for Drug Discovery and Drug Development.

PRIMACYT provides subcellular liver fractions from human and a variety of animals for use in drug development in human and animal health. Also, liver cells and subcellular liver fractions are provided for environmental toxicology studies of herbicide and pesticide metabolism and bioaccumulation studies in birds and fish, like rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) or Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar). S9 fractions and microsomes from species not listed above, e.g., turkey (Meleagris gallopavo), Mallard duck (Anas platyrhynchos) or Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) can be made available upon request. Please ask.

Subcellular fractions derived from liver contain a rich variety of metabolic enzymes for assessing the in vitro metabolism of drug candidates and xenobiotics. They are used to evaluate active pharmaceutical ingredients in human and animal health. Other applications include the environmental toxicological assessment of agrochemicals and the evaluation of cosmetics and food additives.
Precinical studies require the understandíng the potenial interaction between novel candidates and other drugs including information about the underlying pathways. The liver is predominant for the metabolism for endogenous compounds and xenobiotics. Enzymes contained in the Cytochrome P450 superfamily of the liver are used predominantly in invitro drug biotransformation studies.

Did you know?
The subcellular distribution of the zearalenone-reducing activity in liver from goat is special. Comparing pig, goat, sheep, cow and hen the goat has been identified together whith pig had the greatest ability to form alpha- and beta-zearalenol in the microsomal fraction independently of coenzyme.
