Mouse spermatogenic cells are known to express HSP70-2, a member of the HSP70 family of heatshock proteins. The purpose of the present study was to characterize further the expression and localization of HSP70-2 in meiotic cells of mice and hamsters. After separating mouse spermatogenic cells into cytoplasmic and nuclear fractions, proteins were separated(More)
Two dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-D PAGE) and automated image analysis were used to study the effects of bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) activation on secreted and cellular rat alveolar macrophage proteins. Primary alveolar macrophages were cultured and exposed to LPS in the presence of [35S]-methionine for 24 h. Image analysis of 2-D PAGE revealed(More)

Separation of the metabolic products of benzo[a]pyrene has been readily accomplished by high-pressure liquid chromatography. This technique is uniquely suited for compounds labile to air and light and resolving positional isomers of phenolic or other types of oxygenated metabolites of this carcinogen. This procedure has been utilized to separate and compare(More)
Primary cell cultures derived from human skin epithelium metabolized benzo(a)pyrene to three classes of compounds: phenols, quinones, and dihydrodiols. The relative proportions of metabolites varied according to the skin donor but differed from the pattern of metabolites in rat liver microsome preparations. While appreciable amounts of 7,8- and(More)
Variants of chemically immortalized Syrian hamster embryo cells that had either retained (supB+) or lost (supB-) the ability to suppress tumorigenicity when hybridized with a fibrosarcoma cell line were subcloned. Both supB cell types are nontumorigenic; however, the supB- but not supB+ cells exhibit conditional anchorage-independent growth. Alterations of(More)
Since the establishment of the National Toxicology Program (NTP), there have been gradual changes in strategies to evaluate the overall toxicity of chemicals as well as their carcinogenic potential. The spectrum of toxicologic information sought on selected chemicals has been broadened by the multidisciplinary approach to evaluating chemicals. This paper(More)
Differences in benzo(a)pyrene metabolite pattern have been shown by rodent liver microsomes (Sprague-Dawley) and rodent embryo cells from Syrian hamsters and NIH Swiss mice. Rodent liver induced by methylcholanthrene shows marked quantitative variation between species. Additional pattern changes were found in mouse and hamster embryo secondary cultures with(More)
We have measured the pyrimidine nucleotide contents of the culture fluid, acid-soluble fraction, and acid-insoluble fraction of cultures of hamster embryo fibroblasts (third subculture) through the final two divisions of growth in culture. The cells show a growth delay between the penultimate and ultimate division periods and a concomitant biochemical(More)
