Enzyme biochemical and histochemical assays during chemical carcinogenesis in rat liver have revealed that several adult enzyme activities are lost and some fetal enzyme activities are re-expressed in the hyperplastic foci as well as in the developed hepatomas. How these enzyme alterations are acquired and to what extent these changes are specifically(More)
Proliferative advantage of putative preneoplastic hepatocytes measured as the ratio of tritiated thymidine incorporation into cells of hyperplastic nodules with respect to the incorporation in hepatocytes of extranodular liver has been found to be about 2 in rats treated according to 4 carcinogenesis protocols consisting in one or two cycles of(More)
Diethylnitrosamine was injected to Sprague-Dawley rats after a partial hepatectomy, and enzyme histochemistry analysis was made after 35 weeks in the preneoplastic liver. The areas and volumes of the induced enzyme-deficient islands were calculated for glucose-6-triphosphatase, adenosine triphosphatase, and 5'-nucleotidase. The preneoplastic(More)
Carcinogenesis is a multi-step process in which genetic--phenotypic instability and sequential selection of preneoplastic cells for increased growth capacity and other neoplastic characteristics are essential phenomena. During chemical carcinogenesis in rat liver, the development of enzyme-deficient foci, their clonal origin and their relationship to tumour(More)
A two-stage model of hepatocarcinogenesis is used to study the effect of exposure time to ethinyl estradiol (EE) on promotion of preneoplastic lesions in rat liver induced by diethylnitrosamine (DEN). Young male and female Sprague-Dawley rats initiated by a single dose of DEN (100 mg/kg) were subjected to different times of EE administration incorporated(More)
