    Metabolism of xenobiotics Also called:!Biotransformation, or detoxification Primary metabolism – secondary metabolism Goal: To make use of a compound or to facilitate its excretion Increases the water solubility of a compound Divided in two phases, phase I and phase II.   NRs regulate the metabolism of glucose, fatty acids, cholesterol, and bile acids, as well as the detoxification and clearance of xenobiotics. By sensing hormones, metabolites, and drugs, many NRs allow the liver to respond appropriately to environmental : Raymond E. Soccio.

    xenobiotics or biotransformation products, and rate of excretion by the liver or kidneys. Gastrointenstinal absorption and intraperitoneal administration provide immediate passage of a compund to the liver, whereas dermal or respiratory routes provide at least one passage through the systemic circulation prior to reaching the Size: KB. The effects of man-made substances (xenobiotics) on the natural environment are described in this volume. It explains why these effects need to be understood, monitored and curtailed, especially in developing countries.

      -- Low-level exposures to environmental toxins may partially explain the increasing problem of liver disease in U.S. adults, says a Kentucky researcher. "Liver disease is . The liver is also a biochemical filter. It filters about gallons of blood per day. Not only does the liver remove environmental toxins, or xenobiotics, but it also removes metabolic waste from tissues and cells that are carried by the blood supply.

Genetic background, dietary factors, gut microbiota and other factors act simultaneously in the initiation and progression of NAFLD.

In addition, recently studies have shown the link between xenobiotics and the courses of NAFLD. Liver is the major organ for the metabolism and transportation of drugs and environmental by: 9. Metabolism of xenobiotics of human environments. Croom E.

Xenobiotics have been defined as chemicals to which an organism is exposed that are extrinsic to the normal metabolism of that organism. Without metabolism, many xenobiotics would reach toxic by: The liver is the principal, but not the only, site of xenobiotics biotransformation.

The liver has enzymes that facilitate chemical reactions such as oxidation, reduction, and hydrolysis of xenobiotics (phase I).

It has other enzymes that attach substances to the xenobiotics. Studies on the hypothalomo-pituitary-liver axis: A novel concept in regulation of steroid and drug metabolism. In “The Endocrines and The Liver”, Langer, Chiandussi, Chopra and Martini (eds).

Environmental contamination by xenobiotics is a worldwide phenomenon as a result of human activities resulting from rise in urbanization and population growth. Drug metabolism is the metabolic breakdown of drugs by living organisms, usually through specialized enzymatic systems.

More generally, xenobiotic metabolism (from the Greek xenos "stranger" and biotic "related to living beings") is the set of metabolic pathways that modify the chemical structure of xenobiotics, which are compounds foreign to an organism's normal biochemistry, such as any drug. Xenobiotics and intestinally produced metabolites in portal blood may be translocated across the sinusoidal or basolateral membrane of the liver by either diffusion or carrier-mediated processes (van Montfoort et al.

).Carrier-mediated transport is thought to be more important quantitatively and carriers for organic anions, organic cations, bile acids, neutral organic chemicals, and metals. main classes of xenobiotics: drugs, natural products, environmental pollutants.

The part on drugs includes more than substances from five major therapeutic groups (central nervous system, cardiovascular system, cancer, infection, and pain) as well as most drugs of abuse including nicotine, alcohol and "designer" drugs.

The book you are just going to read represents the greater part of the papers presented at the International Conference on Industrial and En­ vironmental Xenobiotics, held in Prague,and some contributions by those who could not come.

The first aim of the meeting was to fol­ low the tradition. Liver is a critical organ for drug metabolism and is the primary site for the expression of Phase-I drug metabolizing enzymes, which mainly catalyze the oxidation, reduction, and hydrolysis of.

Role of Liver Main organ involved Hepatocytes contain wide variety of enzymes to process xenobiotics Enzymes are present in cytosol, endoplasmic reticulum and to lesser extent in other organelles Each enzyme represents a large family of gene product Each gene product may be induced by different xenobiotics.

Environmental Toxicology • There are many sources of environmental toxicity that can lead to the presence of toxins in our food, water and air. • These sources include organic and inorganic pollutants, pesticides and biological agents, all of which can have harmful effects on living organisms.Xenobiotics are molecules that are introduced into the body from the environment and subsequently metabolized by the body.

Most pharmacological agents are lipophilic and their elimination from the body is facilitated by enzymatic modifications to render them more hydrophilic. The liver is a major site for xenobiotic metabolism. In addition to foreign substances, a number of endogenous.In humans, many xenobiotics, environmental toxicants, and 40‒70% of clinical drugs are metabolized by UGTs.
