Introduction During the 30 years or so following the identification of the first pure chemical carcinogen (1), no common factors or pathways in the mechanism of action of carcinogens from different chemical classes were evident. For this reason perhaps, each class of carcinogen, e.g. the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, the aromatic amines and the(More)
Primary mouse embryo cell cultures were grown in the presence of [14C]guanine, labeling primarily deoxyguanosine residues in the cellular DNA, or in the presence of [14C]adenine, labeling both deoxyguanosine and deoxyadenosine residues in the cellular DNA. These cultures were subsequently exposed to 7,12-[3H]dimethylbenz(a)anthracene for 24 hr. The DNA was(More)
Reactions of diol epoxide metabolites of carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons with DNA are thought to initiate the carcinogenic process. Although formation of a benzo[a]pyrene (BaP) diol epoxide-deoxyguanosine adduct has been held responsible for biological activity, the more potent carcinogen, 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA) binds(More)
Stigmergy is a biological term used when discussing a subset of insect swarm-behaviour describing the apparent organisation seen during their activities. Stigmergy describes a communication mechanism based on environment-mediated signals which trigger responses among the insects. This phenomenon is demonstrated in the behavior of ants and their food(More)
Gaseous nitric oxide (NO), an environmental pollutant found in cigarette smoke and diesel exhaust, has been shown to generate mutations in aerobic in vitro assays. The objective of this study was to identify which oxides of nitrogen, formed in the gaseous phase from NO, possess mutagenic activity. Samples of the plasmid pSP189, in 1 M HEPES buffer, pH 7.4,(More)
Building Web 2.0 sites does not necessarily ensure the success of the site. We aim to better understand what improves the success of a site by drawing insight from biologically inspired design patterns. Web 2.0 sites provide a mechanism for human interaction enabling powerful intercommunication between massive volumes of users. Early Web 2.0 site providers(More)
