NCBI Activity: CYP12d1

Cytochrome P450s (CYPs) are found in all organisms and metabolize many xenobiotic chemicals organisms come into contact with everyday. CYP12d1 is found in Drosophila and is known to metabolize DDT. Insecticide resistant strains of Drosophila over-express CYP12d1 along with many other CYP genes.

Limited to full-text articles from the Journals Insect biochemistry and molecular biology & Insect molecular biology from 2005 on with cytochrome p450 as a search term. Alert set up to notify me of new articles being published in these journals on Cytochrome P450s.


GoogleBooks is better than NCBI if you want to find books for background info.
