A Commericial Sunscreen Modulates Aryl Hydrocarbon Receptor-Signaling in Keratinocytes and Inhibits CYP1A1 and CYP1B1 Enzyme Activities

This topic involves gene-environment interactions. Octinoxate (a sunscreen) is the “environmental signal”, and genetic activation via aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR)-signaling represents the “response to the signal.” We are constantly exposed to varying levels of ultraviolet radiation (UVR) from the sun … Continue reading
