Abstract: The sites of expression in the small intestine and the function of CYP2J4, a recently identified rat cytochrome (P450) isoform found to be predominantly expressed in the small intestine, were characterized. Immunoblot analysis with a polyclonal antibody to heterologously expressed CYP2J4 revealed that expression of CYP2J4 was at the highest level in the distal duodenum and jejunum and decreased toward the ileum. Villous cells expressed higher levels of CYP2J4 than crypt cells. Isoform-specific RNA polymerase c…
