DNA adducts of heterocyclic amine food mutagens: implications for mutagenesis and carcinogenesis.
The heterocyclic amines (HCAs) are a family of mutagenic/carcinogenic compounds produced during the pyrolysis of creatine, amino acids and proteins. The major subclass of HCAs found in the human dietExpand

Protection by green tea, black tea, and indole-3-carbinol against 2-amino-3-methylimidazo[4,5-f]quinoline-induced DNA adducts and colonic aberrant crypts in the F344 rat.
Male F344 rats were exposed for 8 weeks to extracts of green tea (2% w/v) or black tea (1% w/v), or to 0.1% dietary indole-3-carbinol (I3C). In weeks 3 and 4 of the study, rats were givenExpand

Protection of conjugated linoleic acids against 2-amino-3- methylimidazo[4,5-f]quinoline-induced colon carcinogenesis in the F344 rat: a study of inhibitory mechanisms.
Grilled ground beef contains a number of heterocyclic amine carcinogens, such as 2-amino-3-methylimidazo[4,5-f] quinoline (IQ), as well as anticarcinogenic conjugated linoleic acids (CLA). In theExpand

Prevention by aspirin and its combination with alpha-difluoromethylornithine of azoxymethane-induced tumors, aberrant crypt foci and prostaglandin E2 levels in rat colon.
The dose-response relationship in male F344 rats was determined for the ability of aspirin administered in the diet to prevent azoxymethane (AOM)-induced colon cancer and aberrant crypt foci (ACF)Expand

Formation of DNA adducts of 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine (PhIP) in male Fischer-344 rats.
2-Amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]-pyridine (PhIP) is known to induce colon tumors in male Fischer-344 rats. Using 32P-postlabeling assays, we have examined PhIP-DNA adduct formation in variousExpand

N-Acetyltransferase expression and DNA binding of N-hydroxyheterocyclic amines in human prostate epithelium.
Intact prostate epithelial cells prepared from benign prostatic hypertrophy tissues from two patients were incubated for 2 h with N-hydroxy derivatives of 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,Expand

Mutagenic activation of IQ, PhIP and MeIQx by hepatic microsomes from rat, monkey and man: low mutagenic activation of MeIQx in cynomolgus monkeys in vitro reflects low DNA adduct levels in vivo.
Cooked meat, poultry and fish contain a number of mutagenic and carcinogenic heterocyclic amines, including 2-amino-3-methylimidazo[4,5-f]quinoline (IQ), 2-amino-3,8-dimethylimidazo[4,5-f]quinoxalineExpand

Lobe-specific increases in malondialdehyde DNA adduct formation in the livers of mice following infection with Helicobacter hepaticus.
Helicobacter hepaticus infection is associated with chronic hepatitis and the development of liver tumours in mice. The underlying mechanism of this liver carcinogenesis is not clear but theExpand

Consequences of 3-methylcholanthrene-type induction for the metabolism of 4-aminobiphenyl in isolated rat hepatocytes.
Carcinogenic aromatic amines such as 4-aminobiphenyl (4-ABP) are extensively metabolized by both oxidative and conjugation reactions. Thus the burden of genotoxic metabolites of 4-ABP in a targetExpand
