Cytotoxic and cell-transforming activities of the three fungicides, captan, captafol and folpet, have been studied in an experimental in vitro model by exposing BALB/c 3T3 cells to the chemicals with or without S-9 mix-induced bioactivation. Cytotoxicity of the three compounds was reduced in the presence of the metabolizing system. Each assayed pesticide(More)
Further information was gathered on the possible carcinogenic hazard associated to the exposure to the insecticide lindane (gamma-hexachlorocyclohexane). The parameters studied were the cytotoxic and cell transforming activities of the pesticide on BALB/c 3T3 cells in an in vitro experimental model system in the absence or in the presence of rat liver S-9(More)
Cytotoxic and cell-transforming activities of methyl thiophanate a systemic fungicide capable of entering plant cells and thus controlling fungal diseases that have already started were studied in an in vitro medium-term (6-8 weeks) experimental model utilizing BALB/c 3T3 cells. Cells were exposed to the chemical, dissolved in dimethyl sulfoxide, in the(More)
Cytotoxic and cell transforming activity of the organophosphate insecticide acephate have been studied in an in vitro experimental model which foresees the exposure of BALB/c 3T3 cells to the chemical. The assay was performed in the presence or absence of metabolic activation system derived from phenobarbital and beta-naphthoflavone induced rats (S9-mix).(More)
