Abstract: The cytochrome P450 enzymes metabolize numerous drugs, chemical carcinogens, environmental pollutants, and endogenous signaling molecules. However, although P450 enzymes have been studied for over 50 years, we still have much to learn about their in vivo functions in various organ systems and their potential disease connections. I will describe our efforts in the development and application of genetically engineered mouse models that target the P450 system for pharmacology, toxicology, and drug discovery/development studies. I will also discuss our current research leads and future directions. Our eventual goal is to apply the basic knowledge on P450 function, regulation, and genetic polymorphisms to translational research, for improvement of drug safety and efficacy, and for identification of novel targets for disease treatment or prevention.
