Effect of sex hormone status on chloroform nephrotoxicity and renal mixed function oxidases in mice
In mice, only males are susceptible to chloroform CHCl3 nephrotoxicity and the susceptibility appears to be related to renal mixed function oxidase activity. There were sex-related differences of renal cytochrome P and b5 concentrations and of ethoxycoumarin O-deethylase activity in mouse kidneys; in all cases activity was higher in males. Castration of male mice eliminated susceptibility to CHCl3 nephrotoxicity and reduced renal mixed function oxidases to concentrations observed in female mice.
