Immunohistochemical measurement of cell proliferation as replicative DNA synthesis in the liver of male Fischer 344 rats following a single exposure to nongenotoxic hepatocarcinogens and noncarcinogens.


We aimed to modify an in vivo/in vitro hepatocyte replicative DNA synthesis (RDS) test using autoradiography of [3H]methylthymidine (3HTdR) into a nonradioactive in vivo version by applying 5-bromo-2'-deoxyuridine (BrdU) immunohistochemistry. The effects of 12 nongenotoxic hepatocarcinogens and 4 noncarcinogens on RDS induction and histological changes in… (More)
