    ..A recent study suggests that the amino acid residues corresponding to Ile324 and Ser380 in the chicken aryl hydrocarbon receptor 1 (AHR1) are important determinants of differential biochemical responses to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-..

    ..The results indicated that not only does the neurotoxicity of dieldrin bring early death, but its effects on reproductive and hepatic functions (detected as gene transcriptional changes in hatchlings) persist harmfully after maturity. ..

    Cytochrome P450 1 (CYP1) genes are biomarkers for aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) agonists and may be involved in some of their toxic effects. CYP1s other than the CYP1As are poorly studied in birds...
