Research Description

The cytochromes P450 (CYP) enzymes are present in the central nervous system with unique regional and cell-type expression. Our recent studies have shown that brain CYPs be organ-selectively regulated by endogenous substances via brain-enriched microRNAs. Brain CYPs are in situ involved in the metabolism of exogenous and endogenous centrally active substances (e.g. drugs, neurotoxins, neurotransmitters). We are interested in the roles of brain CYPs in neuropharmacology and neurotoxicity. The elucidation of the pharmacological roles of brain CYPs will be useful to understand the pathology of the damage to neuronal cells by exogenous substance, and provide the clue for the development of the potential diagnostic biomarkers and therapeutic drugs. We investigate the function and regulation of brain CYPs, integrating the fields of pharmacokinetics in biophase and signal pathways, using in vitro and animal studies. Our experimental approach principally involves biochemical, protein and molecular biological techniques as well as analytical chemistry techniques.
