Abstract

The effects of cobaltic protoporphyrin IX (CPP) administration on hepatic microsomal drug metabolism, carbon tetrachloride activation and lipid peroxidation have been investigated using male Wistar rats. CPP (125 $\mu$mol/kg, 72 h before sacrifice) profoundly decreased the levels of hepatic microsomal heme, particularly cytochrome P-450. Consequently, the associated mixed-function oxidase systems were equally strongly depressed. An unexpected finding was that CPP administration also greatly decreased the activity of NADPH/cytochrome c reductase, a result not generally found with the administration of the more widely used cytochrome P-450 depleting agents, cobaltous chloride. Activation of carbon tetrachloride, measured as covalent binding of [14C] CCl4, spin-trapping of CCl3 and CCl4-stimulated lipid peroxidation, was much lower in liver microsomes from CPP-treated rats. Other microsomal lipid peroxidation systems, utilising cumene hydroperoxide or NADPH/ADP-Fe2+, were also depressed in parellel with the decrease in microsomal enzyme activities.
