ER-dependent estrogenic activity of parabens assessed by proliferation of human breast cancer MCF-7 cells and expression of ERalpha and PR.
Estrogenic activities of the phenolic preservatives methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, isopropylparaben and isobutylparaben were examined by assaying estrogen-receptorExpand
Estimation of estrogenic and anti-estrogenic activities of some phthalate diesters and monoesters by MCF-7 cell proliferation assay in vitro.
Phthalates are man-made chemicals abundantly found in the environment. Estrogenic activities of phthalate di and monoesters were studied by in vitro assay of human breast cancer MCF-7 cellExpand
Cell death induced by the phenolic antioxidant tert-butylhydroquinone and its metabolite tert-butylquinone in human monocytic leukemia U937 cells.
2-tert-Butyl-4-hydroquinone (TBHQ), a phenolic antioxidant used as a food additive, and its metabolite 2-tert-butyl-1,4-benzoquinone (TBQ) were both cytotoxic in human monocytic leukemia U937 cells,Expand
Estimation of Estrogenic and Antiestrogenic Activities of Selected Pesticides by MCF-7 Cell Proliferation Assay
Estrogenic activities of 20 selected pesticides—which are used for agricultural production as insecticides, fungicides and herbicides—were examined by estrogen receptor (ER)-dependent MCF-7 cellExpand
Chromosomal structure of the halophilic archaebacterium Halobacterium salinarium.
The chromosomal structure of the extremely halophilic archaebacterium Halobacterium salinarium was examined. Sheared chromosomes prepared from the bacteria in the late exponential phase wereExpand
Inhibition of cell proliferation by a unique lysophosphatidic acid, PHYLPA, isolated from Physarum polycephalum: signaling events of antiproliferative action by PHYLPA.
The unique Physarum lysophosphatidic acid, PHYLPA, having a cyclopropane in the fatty acid moiety and a cyclic phosphate at C-2 and C-3 positions of the glycerol, inhibited proliferation of humanExpand
Lipids in Harderian Glands and Their Significance
The Harderian gland, discovered by Harder (1694), is well developed in rodents (rat, mouse, golden hamster, Mongolian gerbil, guinea pig, etc.), lagomorphs (rabbit, pika) and cetaceans, and may haveExpand

Mouse mammary gland has been shown to possess a transport system for spermidine, spermine, and putrescine. The uptake system for sperimidine, as studied in detail on mammary explants in culture is aExpand
Structure of the α1 subunit of horse Na,K‐ATPase gene
Genomic DNA for Na,K‐ATPase α1 subunit was obtained from libraries of horse kidney genomic DNA in Charon 4A and in EMBL3 bacteriophages by screening with the full sized cDNA probe of the α1 subunitExpand
