The development of ALL includes both genetic and environmental factors with DNA damage in hematopoietic precursor cells being a crucial step.6 Reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated by environmental toxins and chemical carcinogens result in DNA damage.7 Being substrates of carcinogen metabolizing enzymes, the xenobiotics influence their carcinogenic effect depending on a person's ability to activate or inactivate them by conjugation and detoxification of these compounds.8 Variation in genes that encode carcinogen metabolizing enzymes may therefore explain the differences between the individual's capacity to metabolize different chemical carcinogens and have thus received a considerable level of attention with respect to cancer development.
Based on the outcome of these studies, specific aspects of xenobiotic metabolism in ruminants may arise: 1) Are the observed metabolites ruminant-specific and formed directly in the rumen?
Therefore, despite less transcriptional regulation of hepatic xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes in the liver, WT females appeared to efficiently metabolize these three pesticides, suggesting that the metabolism of pesticides did not only occur in the liver.
In 1991, a group of scientists were brought together for a Wingspread conference to discuss whether xenobiotics, non-biological chemicals found in people and animals, disrupt the endocrine system.
Overexpression of the drug and xenobiotic metabolising cytochrome P450 enzymes for a long time has been considered as one of the major mechanisms of chemoresistance in solid tumours [88, 89].

Living cells are exposed to many intrinsic and extrinsic genotoxic factors like xenobiotics and reactive oxygen species (ROS).
CY3A4 is the most important drug or xenobiotic metabolising enzyme that plays a key role in the biotransformation of foreign compounds, which are introduced into the body for specific reasons [1].
It can nonspecifically oxidize a variety of phenolic and non- phenolic substances including lignin and various other xenobiotic pollutants [6].Many researchers focused on producing the enzyme using biotechnology due to its important degradative potential [7].
Identifying and removing xenobiotic substances and exposures that may challenge iron binding, transport, and utilization.
The orphan nuclear receptor NR1I3 is mostly known for its effect in endo- and xenobiotic metabolism, typically by regulating expression of specific genes in the liver and other organs (13).
