Stannous dichloride is used as a reducing agent in the preparation of technetium-99m radiopharmaceuticals. We decided to evaluate the genotoxic potential of the tin (II)-glucoheptonate complex in the kit using a tester strain of Escherichia coli AB1157. Our results show that tin (II) chloride and the tin (II)-glucoheptonate complex exert a genotoxic effect(More)
Six uterine leiomyomas were studied cytogenetically. The material comprised two uterine myomas from one patient and four tumors from a second patient. In all cases the modal number was 46. The clonal numerical alterations were monosomies involving chromosomes X, 6, 8, 13, 19, and trisomy of 12. The only clonal structural alteration was(More)
OBJECTIVES Solid caustic soda (CS) ingestion levels continue high in Brazil. The aggressiveness of a caustic agent depends, among other factors, on its concentration and time of contact with mucosa. However, the interdependence of these factors in the production of caustic lesion in the esophageal mucosa is not known, especially regarding CS as the(More)
We determined whether alterations in the expression of p53, p16(INK4) and p21(WAF1/CIP1) influence the invasiveness of a subset of gastric adenocarcinomas co-expressing TGFalpha and EGFR. Immunopositivity for TGFalpha-EGFR (26%) was observed in both early and advanced adenocarcinomas, and 88% of these showed immunoreactivity for p53. SSCP analysis revealed(More)
An aneurysmal bone cyst was submitted to cytogenetic analysis. The modal chromosome number was 46. The composite karyotype was 40 approximately 48,XY,-Y[4],-6[3],del(7)(q32)[3],-9[3],+12[2],+13[2], inv(16)(p13.1q24)[4],-17[3],-19[4],-20[3][cp13]. The clonal structural changes detected were del(7)(q32) and inv(16)(p13.1q24). The breakpoints involved affected(More)
The mutational potency of apurinic/apyrimidinic (AP) sites induced by heat-treatment under acidic conditions has been studied in mammalian cells. Abasic sites were induced on a single-stranded DNA shuttle vector carrying the supF tRNA gene, eliminating, therefore, any ambiguity concerning the damaged strand. This vector was able to replicate both in(More)
Cytogenetic analysis was performed in two osteoid osteomas. In both, the modal chromosome number was 46. One of the cases presented a del(22)(q13.1) as the sole clonal chromosome alteration. The other had clonal monosomies of chromosomes 3, 6, 9, 17, 19, and 21, as well as a +del(22)(q13.1) was detected as a non-clonal chromosome alteration. There is only(More)
The cytogenetic analysis of five mammary epithelial hyperplasias is reported. Only two cases had clonal chromosome alterations. Structural alterations involved chromosomes 1 and 5. Numerical alterations involved chromosomes X, 1, 6, 9, and 19. In four cases, the modal number was in the diploid range, and one case was tetraploid. The study of benign(More)
The components of the insulin-like growth factor (IGF) system appear to be involved in regulation of ovarian follicular growth and atresia in the pig. We investigated the expression pattern of mRNAs for IGF1 (IGF1), its binding proteins (IGFBP1, IGFBP2, IGFBP3, and IGFBP5), and epidermal growth factor in swine follicle cells and ovarian tissue (More)
