Transcription profiling by array of human HepG2 cells after treatment with 2,3-Dimethoxy-1,4-naphthoquinone, N-nitrosodimethylamine, phenol and six heavy metals

ABSTRACT: From the results of gene expression analyses of HepG2 under the exposure of 2,3-Dimethoxy-1,4-naphthoquinone (DMNQ), N-nitrosodimethylamine (DMN), phenol and six heavy metals We showed that biological action of six heavy metals were clearly related to that of DMNQ and distinguishable from the other chemicals. These results suggest that oxidative stress is major apparent biological action of high dose heavy metals, supporting the previous reports. Experiment Overall Design: Using Affymetrix HG-Focus arrays, we compared the gene expression patterns of Hep G2 cells induced by six heavy metals (As, Cd, Ni, Sb, Hg or Cr) with that of DMNQ, DMN or phenol, and evaluated the toxicities of these heavy metals.

Microarray technology is proving to be a useful tool to classify undefined environmental toxicants, to investigate underlying mechanisms of toxicity, and to identify candidate toxicant-specific genetic markers by examining global effects of putative toxicants on gene expression profiles. The aim of this study was to evaluate the toxicities of six heavy metals through the comparison with gene expression patterns induced by well-known chemicals. For this purpose, we first identified the genes alte  ...[more]
