Biochem/physiol Actions

FICZ is a potent high affinity ligand of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR), which is a ligand-activated transcription factor that activates the expression of aromatic hydrocarbon metabolizing enzyme genes such as the CYP1A1 gene and has also been shown to have multiple additional roles in cell-cycle regulation, development and maturation of many tissues, control of inflammation, and immune response. FICZ is a photoproduct of tryptophan and is believed to be an endogenous AhR ligand. It is extremely potent, with a Kd value of 0.07 nM.
FICZ (6-formylindolo(3,2b)carbazole) being a photooxidation product of tryptophan, might serve as a chemical messenger of light.

We examined the effects of gut microbial catabolites of tryptophan on the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR). Using a reporter gene assay, we show that all studied catabolites are low-potency agonists of human AhR. The efficacy of catabolites differed substantially, comprising...

Despite broad appreciation of their clinical utility, it has been unclear how vitamin B12 and folic acid (FA) function at the molecular level to directly prevent their hallmark symptoms of deficiency like anemia or birth defects. To this point, B12...
