The NAT2, GSTM1 and GSTT1 genes are known candidate cancer susceptibility markers and have been investigated in breast cancer susceptibility with conflicting results. We conducted a case-control study to investigate the role of NAT2, GSTM1 and GSTT1 in premenopausal breast cancer. Women with the GSTT1 null genotype were found to have a significant 3.15-fold(More)
Copper chloride injection of rats resulted in a 4.5- to 9-fold increase in translatable metallothionein messenger RNA in the liver. Metallothionein in the translation products was identified on the basis of high cysteine and serine incorporation and absence of leucine incorporation as well as comigration with authentic zinc-induced rat-liver metallothionein(More)
The concentrations of copper, zinc and metallothionein-I (MT-I) mRNA were determined in the liver, kidney and brain of the brindled mutant mouse from birth until the time of death. Despite accumulation of copper in the kidney of the mutant, MT-I mRNA concentrations were normal. There was no difference between the MT-I mRNA in the brain of mutant and normal(More)
The binding of CO to the murine inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) oxygenase domain has been studied by laser flash photolysis. The effect of the (6R)-5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-L-biopterin (BH(4)) cofactor L-arginine and several Type I L-arginine analogues/ligands on the rates of CO rebinding has been evaluated. The presence of BH(4) in the iNOS active site(More)
