  • We previously immortalized normal human oral keratinocytes by transfection with recombinant HPV-16 DNA and subsequently exposed the cells to benzo(a)pyrene for 7 days. The exposure to benzo(a)pyrene modified the immortalized cells: the modified cells (HOK-16B-BaP) proliferated in an ordinary culture medium containing physiological calcium level (1.5 mM), but demonstrated only enhanced proliferation capacity without tumor formation in nude mice and failed to show in vitro anchorage-independency… CONTINUE READING
