Incubations of butadiene monoxide (BMO) with mouse, rat, and human liver microsomes or cDNA-expressed human microsomal epoxide hydrolase led to 3-buten-1,2-diol (BDD) detection ; the BDD peak exhibited a GC/MS fragmentation pattern similar to that of reference material.
Incubations with rat liver cytosol did not lead to BDD detection ; however, when mouse or human liver cytosol was used, BDD was detected but at levels lower than those detected with the liver microsomes.
The catalytic efficiency (Vmax/Km ratio) of BDD formation in rat liver microsomes was nearly 3-fold higher than the ratio obtained with mouse liver microsomes.
Among two human liver microsomal samples, one sample exhibited a ratio that was nearly 3-fold higher than that of rat liver microsomes, and the second sample exhibited a ratio that was similar to that of rat liver microsomes.
Although these results suggest epoxide hydrolases may play a role in BMO metabolism in vivo, rats and mice given BMO (71.3-285 mumol/kg) excreted<1% of the dose as BDD into urine within 24 hr.
Thus, further studies into the role of epoxide hydrolases in BMO metabolism and disposition and the fate of BDD are warranted.
