The reaction of the sulfhydryl groups in metallothionein with hydrogen peroxide was examined in HL-60 cells. Partial purification of cell cytosol using Sephadex G-75 chromatography showed that zinc-metallothionein (Zn-MT) was induced by 24-h treatment with 100 microM ZnCl2, but the cellular glutathione content and glutathione peroxidase and catalase(More)
Scavenging of hydroxyl radicals (.OH) by the zinc form of metallothionein (ZnMT) was studied in HL-60 cells and in nuclei from such cells previously treated with ZnCl2 (ZnMT cells). Cells were grown for 48 h to label DNA for alkaline elusion experiments. During the last 24 h 0.1 mM ZnMT was included to induce ZnMT. Generation of DNA single-strand breaks(More)
The objective of this study was to determine whether the inductive effect of phenobarbital (PB) on liver cytochrome P-450 was the result of the action of this drug on all or some hepatocytes. For this purpose, a light (cell band I) and a heavy (cell band II) subpopulation of hepatocytes were separated from rat liver in a continuous density gradient. To(More)
