Sustained endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress has been linked to cell death and the pathogenesis of many liver diseases, including toxic liver, cholestasis, and infectious liver disease. The cellular pathways that attenuate hepatic ER stress have been the focus of many recent studies, but the role of microRNAs (miRNA) in this process remains unknown. Here, we(More)
Metabolites of two structurally related chemical carcinogens, benzo[a]pyrene and 1-nitropyrene, were compared for their ability to cause cytotoxicity and induce mutations in normally repairing or nucleotide excision repair-deficient diploid human fibroblasts; for their ability to induce mutations in a defined gene sequence, supF, when a plasmid containing(More)
