A cytochrome P-450-dependent benzo[a]pyrene mono-oxygenase enzyme system (BPM) has been identified and partially characterized in males of the shore crab Carcinus maenas (L.). Apparent Km values obtained at 30 °C using microsomal preparations from the antennary glands of animals collected during summer were in the range 1.61–2.11 µM. The cytochrome P-450 content was 0·022 nmol/mg microsomal protein when BPM activity in the same preparation was 0·085 nmol/mg protein/min.
