Administration of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD, 20 micrograms/kg) to pregnant C57BL/6J mice (on day 10) resulted in 62% fetuses with cleft palate per litter without any observable maternal toxicity. In contrast, Aroclor 1254 administered at a dose of 750 mumol/kg was not teratogenic. Cotreatment of the pregnant mice with both Aroclor 1254 (244(More)
The metabolism of benzo[a]pyrene by halogenated biphenyl-induced rat hepatic microsomal monooxygenases was determined using a high pressure liquid chromatographic assay system. Incubation of benzo[a]pyrene with microsomes from rats pretreated with phenobarbitone or phenobarbitone-type inducers (2,2',4,4',5,5'-hexachlorobiphenyl,(More)
The effects of neonatally administered phenobarbital (PB) on adult rat hepatic microsomal metabolism of testosterone were examined in 60-, 90-, and 120-day-old animals. Phenobarbital-induced imprinting was evident at all ages; however, female rats appeared to be more susceptible to the neonatal effects of phenobarbital than did male rats. In 60-day-old(More)
High power direct diode lasers [HPDDL] laser are enabling novel surface modification processes such as laser heat treating, laser alloying, and laser cladding due to their high efficiency, unique beam shape, small size, and low installation, maintenance, operating costs. For the first time the diode laser is making laser surface modification an economically(More)
p,p'-DDE, phenobarbital, dieldrin heptachlor, chlordane and toxaphene induced rat liver microsomes exhibited increased formation of the 4,5-dihydrodiol, 3,6-quinone, 9- and 3-hydroxymetabolites of benzo[a]pyrene and the latter three compounds also induced an increase in the rate of formation of the 9,10-dihydrodiol metabolite. Lindane was inactive as an(More)
