Comparative analysis of the cytotoxicity, transformation efficiency, induction of alkali labile sites (ALS) and DNA methylation in human foreskin fibroblasts was carried out with two dimethylhydrazine (DMH) regioisomers (1,1-DMH and 1,2-DMH) and the acetate (A) derivative of the metabolite methylazoxymethanol (MAM) of 1,2-DMH. Effective ED50 cytotoxic doses for MAMA, 1,1-DMH and 1,2-DMH were 0.056, 6.83 and 6.30 mM, respectively. MAMA and 1,1-DMH were more effective transformers than 1,2-DMH… CONTINUE READING
