Benzo(a)pyrene (BaP) is a mutagenic and carcinogenic environmental contaminant. Metabolic activation of BaP is required for it to exert its mutagenic effects. Metabolism occurs via BaP interaction with the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) resulting in induction of phase 1 enzymes. Exposure to BaP is expected to cause differential regulation of AHR-responsive(More)
BACKGROUND Disruption of thyroid hormone signalling can alter growth, development and energy metabolism. Thyroid hormones exert their effects through interactions with thyroid receptors that directly bind thyroid response elements and can alter transcriptional activity of target genes. The effects of short-term thyroid hormone perturbation on hepatic mRNA(More)
Thirteen Yersinia enterocolitica were recovered from a variety of clinical sources. Of these, only one was associated with mesenteric lymphadenitis and belonged to serotype 8. The 12 remaining strains were isolated from nonmesenteric sources and belonged to serotype 17. All strains exhibited the main characteristics of Y. enterocolitica which differentiated(More)
A (109)Cd K X-ray fluorescence (KXRF) measurement system consisting of four detectors in clover-leaf geometry is a non-invasive, low-radiation-dose method of measuring bone lead concentration. Its high precision in estimating the bone lead content makes it a promising tool for the determination of the low levels of lead currently found in the general(More)
Thirteen atypical Yersinia enterocolitica isolates, all fermenting rhamnose, raffinose, and melibiose and utilizing sodium citrate within 24 to 48 h at 22 degrees C (Y.e.rh+), were examined biochemically-serologically, and by gas-liquid chromatography. These data, as well as cultural, biochemical, and antibiotic susceptibility data gathered from two(More)
Nationally representative human biomonitoring data on persistent organic pollutants (POPs) including organochlorine pesticides (OCs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) brominated flame retardants (BFRs) and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are available through the Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS). We have used a systematic approach building on the(More)
Human biomonitoring reference values are statistical estimates that indicate the upper margin of background exposure to a given chemical at a given time. Nationally representative human biomonitoring data on 176 chemicals, including several metals and trace elements, are available in Canada from 2007 to 2013 through the Canadian Health Measures Survey(More)
