In order to estimate the effect of vitamin E on DNA injury and K-ras point mutation at an early stage of 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone(NNK)-induced lung tumorigenesis in mice, the present study was carried out. Presupplement with vitamin E about 15 times more than control for a week significantly inhibited NNK-induced O6-methylguanine(More)
OBJECTIVE AND BACKGROUND Gingival epithelium protects against bacterial infection by producing antimicrobial peptides such as calprotectin. Calprotectin consists of proteins S100A8 and S100A9. Although in vitro assay has shown that neutrophils and gingival epithelial cells express calprotectin, the expression of S100A8 and S100A9 and colocalization of both(More)
The Non-genotoxic Carcinogen Study Group of the Environmental Mutagen Society of Japan organised the first step of an interlaboratory validation study on an improved cell transformation assay employing Balb/c 3T3 A31-1-1 cells. Nineteen laboratories participated in this study. The modified transformation assay was evaluated for its responsiveness, its(More)
The localization of the S-antigen was studied by electron microscopy in the rabbit eye, under three conditions of adaptation: A) 24-hour dark adaptation, B) 24-hour dark adaptation and 1.5-hour light adaptation and C) light adaptation for 30 hours. The Fab' fraction of the IgG of rabbit against the swine S-antigen was labeled with horseradish peroxidase(More)
Localization of S-antigen was studied by a direct enzyme-labeled immunohistochemical method with light and electron microscopes. IgG was prepared from rabbits which were sensitized by swine retinal S-antigen and the IgG was conjugated with horseradish peroxidase (HRP). This HRP-labeled IgG was directly applied to normal rabbit retina and the retina was(More)
