    ..This is relevant to the evaluation of different model systems and to the reduction of off flavor of meat. ..

    ..Based on these findings, continued investigation of the effect of DEX on fish using a battery of complementary biomarkers of exposure and effect is highly relevant. ..

    ..In conclusion, rebaudioside A, stevioside and steviol induce only minor or no changes to the CYP expression and activity, and are not likely to cause food-drug interactions. ..

    ..Gender did not affect the mRNA expression within the different life-stages. These results indicate a similarity to what is observed in humans and porcine foetuses may therefore be a model for humans when studying expression of CYPs. ..

    ..Moreover, we will discuss the roles of nuclear receptors in the cellular regulation of CYP450 expression in select organisms. ..

    ..Along the small intestine and colon the mRNA expression and activity of CYP1A1 and CYP3A was gradually decreased. The results demonstrated, similarity to that reported for humans, and hence adds to the use of pigs as a model for humans. ..

    ..In conclusion, the presented results suggested that the cross-talk between PXR and AhR plays a role in the regulation of CYP3A4 gene expression. ..

    ..When ligands bind to these receptors, signalling is induced either via peptide hormones into the circulation to other organs in the body, or via nerve fibers directly to the brain. ..

    ..Hence, it can be suggested that PPH cultured under serum free conditions provides a reliable hepatocyte model to investigate CYP gene regulation. ..
