Effect of phosphate concentration on testosterone turnover by CYP3A4R and CYP3A4LR Bactosomes
Testosterone turnover by CYP3A4 is sensitive to the concentration of phosphate in the incubation.

 

These assays were carried out at 200 µM testosterone at a P450 concentration of 2.5 pmol per 200 µl.
The length of time for which product formation is linear is also affected by phosphate concentration.

 

Details of a plate reader assay for CYP3A4 activity using 7BQ can be found here.
