2,3,5-(Triglutathion-S-yl)hydroquinone [2,3,5-(triGSyl)HQ] (20 mumol/kg) and 2-(glutathion-S-yl)hydroquinone [2-(GSyl)-HQ] (250 mumol/kg) both cause nephrotoxicity when administered to male rats, although the former is considerably more potent than the latter. To address the issue of the differential potency of these conjugates we investigated the(More)
Sixty Sprague-Dawley rats were fed diets containing 0, 10, 100, 1,000, and 10,000 ppm of methoxychlor for 16 weeks under ad libitum- and restricted-feeding regimens. Methoxychlor at 10,000 ppm was lethal to some rats, reduced food consumption and growth, and increased liver weight relative to body weight. Methoxychlor at 1,000 ppm reduced food consumption(More)
A series of experiments were conducted to find ways of removing dieldrin2 residues from tissues of broiler-type turkeys (Meleagris gallopavo). The turkeys were contaminated with dieldrin and dieldrin-14C by oral dosing. Elimination was measured by assaying for 14C in the droppings. Carcass retention was measured by assaying the tissue for 14C, and in one(More)
A series of experiments was conducted with chickens contaminated with dieldrin-14C to find ways of accelerating the elimination of dieldrin from their bodies. The results of these experiments indicated that charcoal, imbiber beads, and the anion exchanges resins, Dowex XFS-4022 and Dowex SBR-C1, would not be useful agents for increasing the amount of(More)
Some trace elements, such as Mn, Cu and Zn, are absorbed and quickly resecreted into the gut through the bile. When this occurs, the unabsorbed nutrient and the absorbed and resecreted nutrient may mix in the gut, preventing quantitative calculation of either. We have developed a surgical model that prevents this complication. Pigs (20-40 kg) were fitted(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess laboratory performance, use, and limitations in the joint College of American Pathologists and American College of Medical Genetics proficiency testing program for laboratories performing cytogenetic tests based on fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). DATA SOURCES Eight proficiency surveys dealing with FISH detection of(More)
1. The glutathione conjugate of 2-chloro-N-isopropyl[1-14C]acetanilide (14C-propachlor) was perfused through a calf kidney in situ; 23% of the dose was excreted in the perfused kidney urine as the cysteine conjugate, no mercapturic acid was detected. 2. A 5-day-old calf dosed orally with 14C-propachlor excreted 70% dose in the urine as the cysteine(More)
