Differences between rats and mice in induction of 4S beta-naphthoflavone-binding protein expression by treatment with beta-naphthoflavone
Languages of publication
Sprague-Dawley rats and several inbred strains of mice were compared with respect to the induction of 4S BNF-binding protein expression by treatment with beta-naphthoflavone (BNF), an aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) ligand. Inbred strains of mice chosen for the study encompassed 3 allelic forms of AhR found in Mus musculus so far. As it was reported by us earlier, treating rats with BNF caused a significant induction of BNF-binding protein expression. By contrast, no BNF-binding protein was detected in mice treated with BNF in corn oil as a vehicle or with corn oil itself.
