A Mechanism for Mercury Oxidation in Coal-Derived Exhausts
Abstract This paper evaluates an elementary reaction mechanism for Hg0 oxidation in coal-derived exhausts consisting of a previously formulated homogeneous mechanism with 102 steps and a newExpand

Anti‐inflammatory effects of caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE), a nuclear factor‐κB inhibitor, on Helicobacter pylori‐induced gastritis in Mongolian gerbils
Nuclear factor‐κB (NF‐κB) plays a major role in host inflammatory responses and carcinogenesis and as such is an important drug target for adjuvant therapy. In this study, we examined the effect ofExpand

Cell cycle progression, but not genotoxic activity, mainly contributes to citrinin-induced renal carcinogenesis.
Citrinin (CTN) is a food-contaminating mycotoxin that efficiently induces renal tumors in rats. However, the modes of carcinogenic action are still unknown, preventing assessment of the risks of CTNExpand

Inhibition of Intestinal Polyp Formation by Pitavastatin, a HMG-CoA Reductase Inhibitor
It has been suggested that hyperlipidemia is positively associated with colon carcinogenesis. Statins, 3-hydroxy-3-methyl-glutaryl-coenzyme A reductase inhibitors, reduce serum lipid levels. In thisExpand

Ochratoxin A induces DNA double-strand breaks and large deletion mutations in the carcinogenic target site of gpt delta rats.
Ochratoxin A (OTA) is a carcinogen targeting proximal tubules at the renal outer medulla (ROM) in rodents. We previously reported that OTA increased mutant frequencies of the red/gam gene (Spi(-)),Expand

Enhancement of Carcinogenesis and Fatty Infiltration in the Pancreas in N-Nitrosobis(2-Oxopropyl)Amine-Treated Hamsters by High-Fat Diet
Objectives: Obesity is associated with increased pancreatic cancer risk, although the mechanisms have yet to be detailed. This study aimed to elucidate promotion of pancreatic cancer by obesity andExpand

Severity of gastritis determines glandular stomach carcinogenesis in Helicobacter pylori‐infected Mongolian gerbils
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection causes chronic gastritis and is also related to gastric carcinoma. The present study focused on severity of H. pylori‐induced gastritis as a determinant ofExpand

Role of p53 in the progression from ochratoxin A-induced DNA damage to gene mutations in the kidneys of mice.
Carcinogenic doses of ochratoxin A (OTA) cause increases of mutant frequencies (MFs) of the red/gam gene (Spi(-)) in the kidneys of p53-deficient gpt delta mice, but not in p53-proficient mice. Here,Expand

Gene expression analysis of a Helicobacter pylori-infected and high-salt diet-treated mouse gastric tumor model: identification of CD177 as a novel prognostic factor in patients with gastric cancer
BackgroundHelicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection and excessive salt intake are known as important risk factors for stomach cancer in humans. However, interactions of these two factors with geneExpand
