Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) belong to a specific class of nanomaterials with unique properties. Because of their anticipated use in a wide range of industrial applications, their toxicity is of increasing concern. In order to determine whether specific physicochemical characteristics of CNTs are responsible for their toxicological effects, we investigated the(More)
Asbestos-induced mutagenicity in the lung may involve reactive oxygen/nitrogen species (ROS/RNS) released by alveolar macrophages. With the aim of proposing an alternative in vitro mutagenesis test, a coculture system of rat alveolar macrophages (NR8383) and transgenic Big Blue Rat2 embryonic fibroblasts was developed and tested with a crocidolite sample.(More)
Many genotoxic carcinogens react with the sugar-phosphate backbone in DNA to form phosphotriester (PTE) adducts. These lesions are relatively abundant and persistent for some alkylating carcinogens and may therefore serve as useful biomarkers with which to assess genotoxic exposure and potential mutagenic risk. In the present study, we have developed a 32p(More)
Antehypophysial somatotropic and prolactinic cells of the Hedgehog have isolated cilia composed by a ring of 9 or 8 double tubules with or without a central tubule; this single cilia is in relation with a basal corpuscule. A granulo-filamentous neck joins the basal corpuscule to the subjacent centriole; from this granulo-filamentous neck accompanying the(More)
Folliculo-stellar cells are present in the anterior lobe of hypophysis of the monkey Macacus irus. These cells limit strait cavities in which one can observe microvillosites at the apical pole of the cells. The folliculo-stellar cells possess long and thin fibers which insert themselves between different types of granular cells and sometimes extend to the(More)
