2-Hexenal is an α,β-unsaturated carbonyl compound which is mutagenic, genotoxic and forms cyclic 1,N2-propanodeoxyguanosine adducts like similar propenals for which carcinogenicity was shown, e.g. acrolein or crotonaldehyde. Since humans have a permanent intake of 2-hexenal via vegetarian food this genotoxic compound is considered to play a role in human carcinogenicity. The data base is, however, presently not sufficient for a cancer risk assessment. To date no long term carcinogenicity study on 2-hexenal has been published. Detection of respective DNA adducts of this substance in animals or humans could allow cancer risk assessment. Therefore, we have developed a 32P-post-labeling technique based on nuclease P1 enrichment and TLC separation of the labeled adducts. The respective adducts are stable over a wide pH range from pH 4 to pH 11 ...

DNA adducts play a central role in chemical carcinogenesis. The analysis of formation and repair of smoking-related DNA adducts remains particularly challenging as both smokers and nonsmokers exposed to smoke are repetitively under attack from complex mixtures of carcinogens such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and N -nitrosamines. The bulky DNA adducts, which usually have complex structure, are particularly important because of their biological relevance. Several known cellular DNA repair pathways have been known to operate in human cells on specific types of bulky DNA adducts, for example, nucleotide excision repair, base excision repair, and direct reversal involving ...

Many studies using mammalian cellular and subcellular systems have demonstrated that polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, including benzo[a]pyrene (BaP), are metabolically activated by cytochrome P450s (CYPs). In order to evaluate the role of hepatic versus extra-hepatic metabolism of BaP and its pharmacokinetics, we used the hepatic cytochrome P450 reductase null (HRN) mouse model, in which cytochrome P450 oxidoreductase, the unique electron donor to CYPs, is deleted specifically in hepatocytes, resulting in the loss of essentially all hepatic CYP function. HRN and wild-type (WT) mice were treated intraperitoneally (i.p.) with 125 mg/kg body wt BaP daily for up to 5 days. Clearance of BaP from blood was analysed by high-performance liquid chromatography with fluorescence detection. DNA adduct levels were measured by 32P-post-labelling analysis with structural confirmation of the formation of 10-(deoxyguanosin-N2-yl)-7,8,9-trihydroxy-7,8,9,10-tetrahydrobenzo[a]pyrene by liquid ...

Multiple exocyclic DNA adducts arise from reactions of lipid and DNA peroxidation products with DNA bases. These endogenous lesions are mutagenic; therefore, monitoring adduct levels may provide a means of assessing genomic exposure to oxidative damage in human populations. The metabolic processing of endogenously formed exocyclic DNA adducts has now been investigated for the purpose of developing non-invasive markers of oxidative damage. The pyrimidopurinone deoxynucleoside adduct, M1dG, was found to undergo enzymatic oxidation to produce 6-oxo-M1dG. The corresponding base adduct, M1G, was subject to sequential oxidation producing first 6-oxo-M1G and then 2,6-dioxo-M1G. The enzymes xanthine oxidoreductase (XOR) and aldehyde oxidase (AO) catalyzed the oxidation of M1dG and M1G. Additionally, the unsubstitued ...

DNA repair genes have an important role in protecting individuals from cancer-causing agents. Polymorphisms in several DNA repair genes have been identified and individuals with non-dramatic reductions in the capacity to repair DNA damage are observed in the population, but the impact of specific genetic variants on repair phenotype and cancer risk has not yet been clarified. In 308 healthy Italian individuals belonging to the prospective European project EPIC, we have investigated the relationship between DNA damage, as measured by 32P-DNA adduct levels, and three genetic polymorphisms in different repair genes: XRCC1-Arg399Gln (exon 10), XRCC3-Thr241Met (exon 7) and XPD-Lys751Gln (exon 23).

Resveratrol inhibits benzo[a]pyrene-DNA adduct formation in human bronchial epithelial cells Resveratrol (trans-3,4',5-trihydroxystilbene), a phytoalexin present in various plants and foods, has in several in vitro and in vivo studies demonstrated cancer chemopreventive and chemotherapeutic potential. We investigated the in vitro effect of resveratrol on benzo[a]pyrene (B[a]P) -induced DNA adducts in human bronchial epithelial cells. This was compared to the effect of resveratrol on the expression of the cytochrome P450 (CYP) genes CYP1A1 and CYP1B1 and the formation of B[a]P metabolites. Exposure of BEAS-2B and BEP2D cells to B[a]P and increasing concentrations of resveratrol resulted in a dose- and time-dependent inhibition of DNA adduct formation quantified by (32)P-postlabelling. Supporting this result, resveratrol was shown to inhibit CYP1A1 and CYP1B1 gene expression, ...

1887 The 32P-postlabeling assay is an extremely sensitive technique for detecting carcinogen-DNA adducts. However, for the assignment of DNA adduct structures and the accurate determination of DNA adduct levels by 32P-postlabeling authentic adduct standards are needed. For most 32P-postlabeling applications such verified synthetic standard compounds are required in the form of their deoxynucleoside 3′-phosphates because they serve as substrates for the polynucleotide kinase for transfer of [32P]phosphate from [γ-32P]ATP. Three N-(deoxyguanosin)-4-aminobiphenyl 3'-phosphate adducts were prepared and fully characterized by proton NMR and mass spectroscopy to serve as standards for the 32P-postlabeling assay. Apart from the C8- and the N2-deoxyguanosine 3′-phosphate adducts of the mutagenic human bladder ...

The chemistry of acrolein and crotonaldehyde-derived propano-deoxyguanosine (γ-OH-PdG and α-CH3-γ-OH-PdG) adducts was monitored in the 5´-CpG-3´ sequence within a dodecamer duplex by NMR spectroscopy, in situ, using a series of site-specific 13C- and 15N-edited experiments. One striking phenomenon was the formation of an interstrand DNA cross-link, predominantly a carbinolamine. The cross-link existed in equilibrium with the non-crosslinked aldehyde and its geminal diol hydrate. The ratio of aldehyde/diol increased at higher temperatures. The effects of the pH and complementary bases were examined. Molecular modeling suggested that the carbinolamine linkage should be capable of maintaining Watson-Crick hydrogen bonds at both of the tandem C•G base pairs. In contrast, dehydration of the carbinolamine cross-link to an imine (Schiff base) cross-link, or cyclization of the latter to form a pyrimidopurinone cross-link, was predicted to require ...

1184 An increased risk of developing endometrial cancer has been observed in women receiving tamoxifen (TAM) endocrine therapy and chemoprevention. The genotoxic damage induced by TAM metabolites may be involved in the development of endometrial cancer. To investigate the capability of forming TAM-DNA adducts in the endometrium, primary cultured human endometrial explants were exposed to α-hydroxytamoxifen (α-OHTAM) and used for quantitative analysis of TAM-DNA adducts, using 32P-postlabeling/polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and 32P-postlabeling/HPLC analyses. A trans-isoform of α-(N2-deoxyguanosinyl)tamoxifen (dG-N2-TAM) was detected as the major adduct in eight of 9 endometrial explants exposed to 100 μM α-OHTAM at levels of 6.9 ± 5.6 (mean ± S.D.) adducts/107 nucleotides.

Ethenobases are promutagenic DNA adducts formed by some environmental carcinogens and products of endogenous lipid peroxidation. Mutation spectra in tumors induced in mice by urethane or its metabolite vinyl carbamate (Vcar) are compatible with 1,N(6)-ethenoadenine (epsilonA) being an initiating lesion in the development of these tumors. As alkylpurine-DNA-N-glycosylase (APNG) releases epsilonA from DNA in vitro, wild-type and APNG-/- C57Bl/6J mice were treated with Vcar and levels of epsilonA and 3,N(4)-ethenocytosine (epsilonC), which is not a substrate of APNG, were analyzed in liver and lung DNA. At 6 h after the last dose, levels of epsilonA were 1.6-fold higher in DNA from APNG-/- mice and subsequently persisted at higher levels for longer than in DNA from wild-type ...

In M. Olling et al. (1995) an experiment was reported about the toxicokinetics of Benzo-a-Pyrene B(a)P in rats after repeated daily dosing p.o. From this experiment it appeared that the kinetic parameters AUC, Cmax and tmax varied as a function of time. At the first day of the experiment the values for AUC and Cmax were highest, while the value for tmax was lowest. At day 5 and day 12, i.e. the fifth day of the first and second week, AUC and Cmax were highest and tmax was lowest. However, at day 15, i.e. the first day after the weekend, during which the animals were not dosed, the values were intermediate and almost restored. The observations regarding Cmax can be explained by Ah-receptor dependent autoinduction of B(a)P. In Zeilmaker et al. (1997) a cellular model was reported for Ah-receptor dependent P450 induction. This model was incorporated in a Physiologically Based PharmacoKinetic (PBPK) model of the rat. In this report it is tried to explain the experimental observations of Olling et ...
