Goat is small ruminant, and has recently gained economically importance as a valuable source of meat and milk in many parts of the world. The cytochrome P450 (CYP) superfamily comprises a large number of enzymes that catalyze oxidative biotransformation of a broad range of external compounds. All examined tissues of the goats expressed CYP3A-like mRNA with a remarkable decreasing pattern of CYP3A from duodenum to ileum while liver and esophagus showed the highest level of CYP3A-like mRNA expression. This work provides a deeper comprehension of the contribution of CYP3A enzymes to xenobiotic metabolism especially, in small ruminants like goats.
