Activation of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1) in response to DNA damage is an important mechanism to keep homeostasis or to trigger apoptosis. The expression and function of (PARP-1) was studied in primary cells cultured from human lung. Normal human bronchial epithelial cells (NHBEC) and peripheral lung cells (PLC) from lung cancer patients were(More)
Defense against toxic endo- and xenobiotics is a major concern of all living species and ABC transporters play a vital role in this defense system. Multidrug resistance associated proteins 1 (MRP1) is a cellular detoxifying factor supposed to transport a wide range of compounds across cell membranes either as GSH conjugates or as co-transport accompanying(More)
Primary cultures of human lung cells can serve as a model system to study the mechanisms underlying the effects of irritants in air and to get a deeper insight into the (patho)physiological roles of the xenobiotic detoxification systems. For 99 human lung cancer cases the culture duration for bronchial epithelium and peripheral lung cells (PLC) are given in(More)
