Developmental anomalies of the appendicular skeleton are among the most common and easily ascertained birth defects. Split hand/split foot malformations, distinctive in having deficiency of the central rays, occur as isolated anomalies and as one component of multisystem syndromes. The clinical and molecular characterization of a new syndrome, found in two(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the potential effects of dietary 6-phenylhexyl isothiocyanate (PHITC) on N-nitrosomethylbenzylamine (NMBA)-induced esophageal carcinogenesis in rats. Groups of 15 male F344 rats received weekly s.c. injections of NMBA in 20% dimethylsulfoxide or the vehicle alone for 15 consecutive weeks. Two weeks prior to(More)
As part of a routine screening assay, benzaldehyde was found to inhibit 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK) metabolism. Consequently, the effects of benzaldehyde and several structurally related compounds on NNK metabolism were examined in murine hepatic and pulmonary microsomes. All test compounds inhibited formation of the metabolites(More)
Previous work by others shows that d-limonene (LIM) inhibits carcinogen-induced lung tumorigenesis in mice and strongly suggests that LIM can inhibit the metabolic activation of nitrosamines such as 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK). Thus, in the current study, the ability of LIM and other monoterpenes to inhibit the activation of the(More)
