DNA strand breaks, oxidative damage, and 1-OH pyrene in roofers with coal-tar pitch dust and/or asphalt fume exposure
Objective: To determine the potential for asphalt fume exposure to increase DNA damage, we conducted a cross-sectional study of roofers involved in the application of roofing asphalt. Methods: DNAExpand
Priorities for development of research methods in occupational cancer.
Occupational cancer research methods was identified in 1996 as 1 of 21 priority research areas in the National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA). To implement NORA, teams of experts from variousExpand
Depression of calcium dynamics in cardiac myocytes--a common mechanism of halogenated hydrocarbon anesthetics and solvents.
Individual halogenated hydrocarbons (HC) have recently been demonstrated to depress Ca2+ dynamics in cardiomyocytes during excitation-contraction coupling. In the present study, eight widely used HCExpand
DNA damage in leukocytes of workers occupationally exposed to 1-bromopropane.
1-bromopropane (1-BP; n-propyl bromide) (CAS No. 106-94-5) is an alternative to ozone-depleting chlorofluorocarbons that has a variety of potential applications as a degreasing agent for metals andExpand
Oxidative DNA damage is associated with intense noise exposure in the rat
Increasing evidence suggests that noise-induced hearing loss may be reduced or prevented with antioxidant therapy. Biochemical markers of reactive oxygen species (ROS)-induced damage can helpExpand
Oxidative stress and DNA damage in Fischer rats following acute exposure to trichloroethylene or perchloroethylene.
Oxidative DNA damage is emerging as an biomarker of effect in studies assessing the health risks of occupational chemicals. Trichloroethylene (TCE) and perchloroethylene (PERC) are used in the dryExpand
Effect of perchloroethylene, smoking, and race on oxidative DNA damage in female dry cleaners.
Perchloroethylene (PERC) is used widely as an industrial dry cleaning solvent and metal degreaser. PERC is an animal carcinogen that produces increased incidence of renal adenomas, adenocarcinomas,Expand
Arachidonic acid disrupts calcium dynamics in neonatal rat cardiac myocytes.
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of prolonged arachidonic acid (AA) exposure on electrically induced fluctuations of cytosolic free Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) inExpand
Transport of calcium by duodenum of spontaneously hypertensive rat.
The absorption of calcium by segments of duodenum obtained from spontaneously hypertensive (SH) rats and normotensive Wistar-Kyoto (WKy) rats was measured before and after the development ofExpand
50-Hertz magnetic field and calcium transients in Jurkat cells: results of a research and public information dissemination (RAPID) program study.
An effect on intracellular calcium continues to be proposed as a biochemical pathway for the mediation of biologic effects of electrical-power-frequency magnetic fields (MF). However, reproducibleExpand
