Mutagenic heterocyclic amines are generated in foods when they are cooked at temperatures over 150 degrees C. These compounds are present from 0.1 to 50 ppb, depending on the food and cooking conditions. These heterocyclic amines are not only present in cooked red meat, fish, and chicken, but are also present at lower levels in baked and fried foods derived(More)
To test the hypothesis that the sulfotransferase gene plays a role in the phase II bioactivation of PhIP, a heterocyclic amine found in cooked meats, we transfected the UV5P3 cell line with cDNA plasmids of human aryl sulfotransferases (HAST1 and HAST3). UV5P3 is a nucleotide excision repair-deficient and P4501A2-expressing CHO cell line that we have(More)
The aggregation of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (AChRs) is an early hallmark of the formation of neuromuscular junction (NMJ), and nitric oxide is recently known to play an important role. In many NMJ studies, nerve-muscle coculture model was used, and NG108-15 cells, a neuroblastoma x glioma hybrid cell line, were the most frequently used nerve cells.(More)
