Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons induce both apoptotic and anti-apoptotic signals in Hepa1c1c7 cells.


In this study we show that benzo[a]pyrene (B[a]P) and the cyclopenta polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (CP-PAH) cyclopenta[c,d]pyrene (CPP), benz[j]aceanthrylene (B[j]A) and benz[l]aceanthrylene (B[l]A) induce apoptosis in Hepa1c1c7 cells, as measured by fluorescence microscopy and flow cytometry. The compounds induced formation of the active form of caspase… (More)
