Cytochrome P450 enzymes (CYPs) oxidize lipophilic molecules and are well examined in the liver and environmentally exposed tissues. Renate Effner (research group Environment, Prof. Dr. Jeroen T. Buters) now reported that CYP1 enzymes are cleaners of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) in human...
The Center of Allergy and Environment (ZAUM), which is located in Munich, is a hybrid institute equally funded by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Helmholtz Zentrum München (HMGU). The working groups of the ZAUM are either located in the heart of Munich at the Biederstein Campus in Schwabing or at the Helmholtz Campus in Neuherberg.The aims of the ZAUM are to promote research on allergic diseases to gain mechanistic insights into the disease and to push therapeutic developments in order to provide better patient care or even be able to prevent the onset of allergic diseases.
