Submitter Supplied Information

Using full-genome arrays, the expression of all XMEs was examined during fetal (gestation day (GD) 19), neonatal (postnatal day (PND) 7), prepubescent (PND30), middle age (12 mon), and old age (18 and 24 mon) in the C57Bl6/J mouse liver and compared to young adults. Fetal and neonatal life stages had a dramatic effect on XME expression compared to the relatively minor effects of old age. At all life stages except PND30 down-regulated genes outnumbered up-regulated genes. The altered XMEs included those in all of the major metabolic phases including phase I (alcohol and aldehyde dehydrogenase and Cyp genes), phase II (aldo-keto reductase, glutathione-S-transferases, sulfotransferases and UDP-glucuronosyl transferases) and phase III (transporters). We have generated a comprehensive catalog of XME hepatic gene changes through the life stages of the mouse that can be used to predict chemicals and chemical classes different life stages are more sensitive to. Some CEL files used in this study have been submitted through GSE21224.
