This study was performed to characterize the (possible) DNA-damaging properties of dental materials and to identify specific compounds that contribute to this genotoxicity. For screening, three tests that assay for different aspects of genotoxicity (i) the bacterial umu-test; (ii) the eucaryotic DNA synthesis inhibition test; and (iii) the in vivo alkaline(More)
In two mouse strains, SAM P (senescence acceleration prone) and SAM R (senescence acceleration resistant), of different longevities, with a ratio of P/R=1:2), the DNA status in the course of aging has been investigated using the DNA Alkaline Filter Elution (AFE) technique. Six different organs (brain, liver, heart, lung, intestine, and muscle) have been(More)

Previous studies with four rapid in vitro and in vivo test systems have shown that the epoxy resin-based root canal sealer AH26 may be genotoxic and cytotoxic (9). The purpose of this study was to determine the cytotoxic and genotoxic effects of the new resinous root canal sealer AH Plus by means of the growth inhibition test with primary human periodontal(More)
The presence of a 'multixenobiotic resistance' [MXR] mechanism in gills of the freshwater clam Corbicula fluminea was investigated. Western blot analyses of membrane vesicles from gills, applying antibodies to vertebrate P170 multidrug resistance (MDR) protein, revealed a 135 kDa immunoreactive protein. Verapamil caused a reduction of 3H-vincristine(More)
