Accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) is used to determine the amount of carcinogen covalently bound to mouse liver DNA (DNA adduct) following very low-level exposure to a 14C-labeled carcinogen. AMS is a highly sensitive method for counting long-lived but rare cosmogenic isotopes. While AMS is a tool of importance in the earth sciences, it has not been(More)
The tissue distribution and macromolecular binding of benzene was studied over a dose range spanning nine-orders of magnitude to determine the nature of the dose-response and to establish benzene's internal dosimetry at doses encompassing human environmental exposures. [14C]-Benzene was administered to B6C3F1 male mice at doses ranging between 700 pg/kg and(More)
2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo(4,5-b)pyridine (PhIP) has been implicated as a major mutagenic heterocyclic amine in the human diet and is carcinogenic in the rat prostate. To validate PhIP-induced rat prostatic neoplasia as a model of human prostate cancer progression, we sought to study the earliest histologic and morphologic changes in the prostate and(More)
Epidemiology studies have indicated that certain dietary components, including well-cooked meat, are risk determinants for colon cancer. Cooked meat can contain significant quantities of heterocyclic aromatic amines (HCAs), which have been established as carcinogens in laboratory animals. 2-Amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine (PhIP) is usually the(More)
Chlorophyll (Chla) and chlorophyllin (CHL) were shown previously to reduce carcinogen bioavailability, biomarker damage, and tumorigenicity in trout and rats. These findings were partially extended to humans, where CHL reduced excretion of aflatoxin B(1) (AFB(1))-DNA repair products in Chinese unavoidably exposed to dietary AFB(1). However, neither AFB(1)(More)
2-Amino-3,8-dimethylimidazo[4,5-f]quinoxaline (MeIQx) and 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine (PhIP) are heterocyclic amines formed during the cooking of meat and fish. Both are genotoxic in a number of test systems and are carcinogenic in rats and mice. Human exposure to these compounds via dietary sources has been estimated to be under 1(More)
MOTIVATION The DeCyder software (GE Healthcare) is the current state-of-the-art commercial product for the analysis of two-dimensional difference gel electrophoresis (2D DIGE) experiments. Analyses complementing DeCyder are suggested by incorporating recent advances from the microarray data analysis literature. A case study on the effect of smallpox(More)
Tamoxifen was administered to three strains of female mice (B6C3F1, C57BL/6 and DBA/2) in short- and long-term studies to determine their ability to activate tamoxifen and cause hepatic DNA damage. 32P-Postlabelling of liver DNA from mice treated for 4 days showed a group of major adducts that increased in a dose-dependent manner and co-chromatographed with(More)
The levels of aflatoxin B(1)-DNA and aflatoxin B(1)-albumin adducts were investigated by accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) in humans and rats following exposure to a known, dietary relevant amount of carbon-14 labeled aflatoxin B(1) ([(14)C]AFB(1)). The aims of the study were to: (a) investigate the dose-dependent formation of DNA and protein adducts at(More)
