Abstract

The induction of cytochrome P 450 (c+d) messenger RNAs in rat liver by 3-Methyl cholanthrene follows a biphasic pattern. Administration of cycloheximide blocks the induction of cytochrome P 450 (c+d) messenger RNAs by 3-methylcholanthrene as well as cytochrome P 450 (b+e) messenger RNAs by phenobarbitone. Transcription of these messenger RNAs in isolated nuclei is also blocked by cycloheximide administration. Thus, cycloheximide not only fails to mimic the superinduction effects reported in hepatoma cell cultures, but actually blocks the specific transcription process. Exogenous hemin, while counteracting the effects of $CoCl_2$ (heme biosynthetic inhibitor) on cytochrome (c+d) messenger RNA induction by the hydrocarbon, fails to counteract the effects of cycloheximide. It is suggested that a positive labile transcription factor is involved in the regulation of cytochrome P 450 gene expression in vivo.
