The xenobiotic-metabolizing P450s play an important role in the metabolism of endogenous and exogenous chemicals, including aristolochic acid (AA), a potential carcinogen and potent toxicant responsible for Aristolochic Acid Nephropathy (AAN). It has been known that AA is metabolized by certain isoforms of P450 in both liver and kidney microsomes. ..
