Halogenated hydrocarbons (CCl4, BrCCl3, 1,1-dichloroethylene, bromobenzene) cause a wide spectrum of dysfunction and injury in liver cells. An early effect of CCl4, BrCCl3, and 1,1-dichloroethylene is destruction of the Ca2+-sequestering ability of the endoplasmic reticulum, and it has been suggested that this lesion leads to subsequent disruption of other(More)
BACKGROUND The survival response of normal cells to heat stress is an upregulation of heat shock proteins and ras protein activation. We hypothesized that in lung cancer cells the presence of oncogenic ras interferes with thermoprotective mechanisms resulting in cell death. METHODS An equal number of lung tissue culture cells (normal and cancerous) were(More)
