PRIMA-1 reactivates mutant p53 by covalent binding to the core domain.
Restoration of wild-type p53 expression triggers cell death and eliminates tumors in vivo. The identification of mutant p53-reactivating small molecules such as PRIMA-1 opens possibilities for theExpand

Formation of N-7-(2-carbamoyl-2-hydroxyethyl)guanine in DNA of the mouse and the rat following intraperitoneal administration of [14C]acrylamide.
Acrylamide is an alkylating agent which reacts very slowly in direct reactions with DNA and is negative in the Ames test, but is carcinogenic in mice and rats. In order to explain theExpand

Reaction products in hemoglobin and DNA after in vitro treatment with ethylene oxide and N-(2-hydroxyethyl)-N-nitrosourea.
Reaction products with DNA and blood proteins have been used for monitoring human exposure to electrophilic compounds and metabolites. The formation of products with nucleophilic sites in DNA afterExpand

DNA adducts among personnel servicing and loading diesel vehicles.
The levels of aromatic DNA adducts were compared by the 32P-postlabeling assay between the lymphocytes isolated from bus maintenance and truck terminal workers, using hospital mechanics as a controlExpand

Birth Weight, Head Circumference, and Prenatal Exposure to Acrylamide from Maternal Diet: The European Prospective Mother–Child Study (NewGeneris)
Background: Acrylamide is a common dietary exposure that crosses the human placenta. It is classified as a probable human carcinogen, and developmental toxicity has been observed in rodents.Expand

Placental transfer and DNA binding of benzo(a)pyrene in human placental perfusion.
Benzo(a)pyrene (BP) is the best studied polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon, classified as carcinogenic to humans. The carcinogenic metabolite, benzo(a)pyrene-7,8-dihydrodiol-9,10-epoxide (BPDE), bindsExpand

Sun and ski holidays improve vitamin D status, but are associated with high levels of DNA damage.
Skin cancer is caused by solar UVR, which is also essential for vitamin D production. DNA damage (thymine dimers: T-T dimers) and vitamin D (25(OH)D) synthesis are both initiated by solar UVB. WeExpand

Evaluation of genetic risks of alkylating agents. II. Haemoglobin as a dose monitor.
The degree of alkylation of haemoglobin was determined at different times after treatment of mice with one directly active alkylating agent, ethylene oxide, and one agent that requires metabolicExpand

Evaluation of genetic risks of alkylating agents IV. Quantitative determination of alkylated amino acids in haemoglobin as a measure of the dose after-treatment of mice with methyl methanesulfonate.
Abstract The present study explores the possibilities of using specific amino acids in haemoglobin for tissue dosimetry of alkylating agents. The well-known directly alkylating compound methylExpand
