Theoretical mechanisms for synthesis of carcinogen-induced embryonic proteins: XII mutational and non-mutational mechanism as subsets of a more general mechanism. Part A--Ethionine.

Abstract

The ethionine-induced genic derepression mechanism is visualized as a secondary process that occurs after the S-adenosyl-L methionine pool concentrations are lowered to critical levels. Although DNA methylation has been shown to be correlated with genic activity, the times observed for inducement (3 days) of the alpha-fetoprotein gene and its reversibility… (More)
