Exposure of cells to toxic chemicals is known to up-regulate the expression of a number of stress proteins (SPs), including metallothionein (MT) and members of the heat shock protein (HSP) family, and this response may allow the development of a fingerprint profile to identify mechanisms of toxicity in an in vitro toxicology setting. To test this(More)
The up-regulation of heat shock protein (HSP) expression has been proposed as a general biomarker of cellular protection against various environmental stresses and chemicals. The present study investigated the possibility of using HSP70 up-regulation as a biomarker of toxicant exposure in vitro. Cells of a rat hepatoma cell line (FGC4) were exposed to(More)
A database of over 280 chemicals has been compiled by using a mouse 3T3-L1 fibroblast-like cell line in exponential growth, exposed to chemicals for 72 hours in a 96-well tissue culture plate format, and determining cell number via the Kenacid blue (KB) assay for total protein. Ranking the chemicals according to their basal cytotoxicity, expressed as the(More)
