Induction of drug (xenobiotic)-metabolizing enzymes is a common biological response to xenobiotics, the mechanisms and consequences of which are important in academic, industrial, and regulatory areas of pharmacology and toxicology. This monograph, for the first time, has brought together researchers who deal specifically with drug-metabolizing enzymes and peroxisome proliferators. It contains an up-to-date review of peroxisome proliferation, with detailed tables on the 100 known peroxisome proliferators and studies on their hepatocarcinogic capacity. It provides current material from 12 different laboratories doing cutting-edge research on the effect of peroxisome proliferators on drug-metabolizing enzymes.The book covers the response of cytochrome P450s, UDP-glucuronosyltransferases, epoxide hydrolases, glutathione S-transferase, DT-diaphorase, and other enzymes.
