DNA binding and its relationship to carcinogenesis by different polycyclic hydrocarbons.

Abstract

Five different polycyclic hydrocarbons with different degrees of carcinogenicity in vivo were tested for their metabolism to water-soluble products and their binding to DNA, RNA, and protein in normal embryonic hamster and BHK cells. The compounds studied were 7, 12-dimethylbenz(a)anthracene, benzo(a)pyrene, 20-methyl-cholanthrene, dibenz(a,h)anthracene and… (More)
