Abstract

The Coh-locus is a gene area on mouse chromosome 7 which was described first by Wood and Conney in 1974 (Wood, et al.) from breeding experiments. The name was coined because the gene locus was characterized by using coumarin as substrate for cytochrome P-450 (Coh = coumarin 7-hydroxylase). Later Wood and Taylor (1979) distinguished two forms of the locus, one coding for a cytochrome P-450 with low activity towards coumarin (Cohl in B6-mice) and another coding for a high activity variety of the coumarin 7-hydroxylase (Cohh in D2-mice).
