Application of an in Vitro Assay to Identify Chemicals That Increase Estradiol and Progesterone Synthesis and Are Potential Breast Cancer Risk Factors
In vitro screening data is a helpful addition to current toxicity assessments, which are not sensitive to mammary gland effects, and several hundred chemicals that should be considered as potential risk factors for breast cancer because they increased E2 or P4 synthesis are identified.
Engineering Pseudomonas fluorescens for Biodegradation of 2,4-Dinitrotoluene
The nonpathogenic psychrotolerant rhizobacterium Pseudomonas fluorescens ATCC 17400 was genetically modified for degradation of this priority pollutant, and this strain was able to use 2,4-dinitrotoluene as a sole nitrogen source and to completely degrade this compound as a cosubstrate.
