We have examined the tissue-specific expression and inducibility of acyl-CoA oxidase and cytochrome P450IVA1 (P450IVA1) RNA in rats. Groups of three rats were dosed daily by gavage with methylclofenapate at 25 mg/kg in 5 ml/kg corn oil for nine weeks, or were administered a vehicle control. P450IVA1 and acyl-CoA oxidase RNA were detected using an RNase protection assay. Similar levels of acyl-CoA oxidase RNA were present in control liver and kidney, but the level of this RNA in lung, muscle and testis was 6-11%, and in pancreas was 0.13%, of that in liver. Treatment of rats with methylclofenapate led to an 11-fold induction of acyl-CoA oxidase RNA in liver and also produced a significant induction of this RNA in kidney, lung, muscle and testis of 1.7-fold, 1.3-fold, 2-fold and 1.7-fold, respectively. Acyl-CoA oxidase RNA was not induced in pancreas. P450IVA1 RNA was present in control liver and also in kidney of control rats at 28% of the level in liver. In contrast to acyl-CoA oxidase RNA, P450IVA1 RNA was not detected in lung, pancreas or testis. Methylclofenapate treatment of rats led to an 18-fold induction of P450IVA1 RNA in liver, and a sevenfold induction in kidney. Induction of P450IVA1 was not detected in any of the other tissues examined. Quantification of the relative amounts of acyl-CoA oxidase and P450IVA1 RNA in control liver revealed that acyl-CoA oxidase RNA was present in a 17.5-fold molar excess over P450IVA1 RNA. Western blotting with an anti-P450IVA IgG revealed two bands of similar apparent molecular mass in liver and kidney microsomes, but not in microsomes from the testis of control rats. Methylclofenapate treatment of rats caused an increase in the intensity of these bands in microsomes from liver, but no induction was obvious in kidney. Immunocytochemical staining for both the microsomal P450IVA and peroxisomal acyl-CoA oxidase proteins was restricted to the proximal convoluted tubule in the kidney cortex, with staining being most intense in the S3 region.
