1. The disposition of [14C]diethanolamine (DEA) (1) was determined in rat after oral, i.v. and dermal administration, and in mouse after dermal administration. 2. Oral administration of DEA to rat was by gavage of 7 mg/kg doses once and after daily repeat dosing for up to 8 weeks. Oral doses were well absorbed but excreted very slowly. DEA accumulated to(More)
Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) are a broad class of synthetic nanoparticles that are utilized in a wide variety of consumer products as antimicrobial agents. Despite their widespread use, a detailed understanding of their toxicological characteristics and biological and environmental hazards is not available. To support research into the biodistribution and(More)
Injection of a porcine cytosolic sperm factor (SF) or of a porcine testicular extract into mammalian eggs triggers oscillations of intracellular free calcium ([Ca(2+)](i)) similar to those initiated by fertilization. To elucidate whether SF activates the phosphoinositide (PI) pathway, mouse eggs or SF were incubated with U73122, an inhibitor of events(More)
N-Hydroxymethylacrylamide (NHMA), a mouse carcinogen inactive in the Salmonella assay and mouse micronucleus (MN) assay, was tested for reproductive effects in a mouse continuous breeding study. In that study, increased embryonic deaths were observed after 13 weeks exposure of parental animals to NHMA via drinking water (highest dose, 360 ppm); the results(More)
p, p'-Dichlorodiphenyl sulfone (DDS) is a lipophilic monomer used extensively in the synthesis of high temperature plastics. Studies of the fate of uniformly labeled [14C]DDS in the rat have established that it is readily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, distributed to all tissues examined, and concentrated in adipose tissue. After intravenous(More)
