  1. Prediction of skin sensitization potency using machine learning approaches

    Qingda Zang, Michael Paris, David M. Lehmann, Shannon Bell, Nicole Kleinstreuer, David Allen, Joanna Matheson, Abigail Jacobs, Warren Casey and Judy Strickland

    Replacing animal testing for regulatory classification of skin sensitizers is a high priority for US federal agencies. We developed machine learning approaches combining data from three non-animal methods with physicochemical property data to predict three categories of skin sensitization. The top model surpassed the accuracy of a standard animal test for skin sensitization, suggesting that computational models using data from non-animal methods can provide valuable information to assess skin sensitization potency.

  2. Current sights for mechanisms of deoxynivalenol-induced hepatotoxicity and prospective views for future scientific research: A mini review

    In this table, we have shown that DON induced liver damage with positive and negative results in different animal models and cell lines. This mycotoxin can evokes obvious pathological changes in tissue by altering repssions of relative enzymes or oxidative stress. Otherwise, DON can induces expressions of apoptotic proteins thereby producing hepatic fibrosis and other kinds of liver damage.

  3. Glucose-rich diet aggravates monocrotophos-induced dopaminergic neuronal dysfunction in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Learning and memory were affected by MCP and glucose while basal slowing response of cat-2 worms exposed to MCP and glucose were less affected than N2 of the same treatment. MCP-treated worms showed lesser repulsion to nonanone compared to control worms MCP+ glucose worms showed a greater reduction in repulsion to nonanone. MCP+ glucose worms exhibited a marked reduction in dopamine content BZ555 worms showed a significant degeneration of dopaminergic neurons when exposed to glucose and MCP.

  4. Genotoxic risk of ethyl-paraben could be related to telomere shortening

    The impact of parabens in human breast tissue remains unclear. We demonstrated a genotoxic effect of ethyl-paraben with and without metabolic activation (S9) and a correlation between telomere dysfunction and increased genotoxic response after ethyl-paraben treatment in studies following OECD guidelines. These data demonstrate genotoxicity and a higher MN frequency of cells with telomere shortening in the presence of ethyl-paraben and could advance our knowledge on the role of paraben in breast cancer cells characterized by drastic telomere shortening.

  5. In vitro detection of diesel exhaust particles induced human lung carcinoma epithelial cells damage and the effect of resveratrol

    Qifei Li, Mingjie Tang and Anhong Zhou

    Version of Record online: 9 DEC 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/jat.3423

    A combination of two non-invasive techniques (Atomic force microscopy, AFM, and Raman micro-spectroscopy, RM) and other biological instrument tools (flow cytometry and multiplex ELISA) were applied to evaluate the biophysical, biochemical alterations and cytokine, membrane potential and cell cycle of cells with or without resveratrol (RES) pretreatment to different times of diesel exhausted particles (DEPs) exposure to better understand the mechanisms of DEP-induced cell damages and the study of the roles of RES in DEP damaged lung cancer cells.
