ABSTRACT

The nervous system of the B6C3F1 mouse has rarely been a target for chemical carcinogenesis in the National Toxicology Program (NTP) bioassays. However, 6 malignant gliomas and 2 neuroblastomas were observed in B6C3F1 mice exposed to 625 ppm 1,3-butadiene (NTP technical reports 288 and 434). These mouse brain tumors were evaluated with regard to the profile of genetic alterations that are observed in human brain tumors. Alterations in the p53 tumor suppressor gene were common. Missense mutations were observed in 3/6 malignant gliomas and 2/2 neuroblastomas and were associated with loss of heterozygosity. Most of the mutations occurred in exons 5-8 of the p53 gene and were G-->A transitions, and did not involve CpG sites. Loss of heterozygosity at the Ink4a/Arf gene locus was observed in 5/5 malignant gliomas and 1/1 neuroblastoma, while the PTEN(phosphatase and tensin homologue) gene locus was unaffected by deletions. One of 2 neuroblastomas had a mutation in codon 61 of H-ras, while H-ras mutations were not observed in the malignant gliomas examined. Only 1 brain tumor has been reported from control mice of over 500 NTP studies. This malignant glioma showed no evidence of alterations in the p53 gene or K- and H-ras mutations. It is likely that the specific genetic alterations observed were induced or selected for by 1,3-butadiene treatment that contributed to the development of mouse brain tumors. The observed findings are similar in part to the genetic alterations reported in human brain tumors.

Area nekrosis dan pembuluh darah dengan sel endothel yang berproliferasi terlihat jelas (Kim et al., 2005). Karakteristik morfologi maglinant glioma pada tikus ini konsisten dengan yang dilaporkan pada manusia (Kleihues dan Cavenee, 2000). "

    DESCRIPTION: Kejadian tumor spontaneous dapat dijadikan model untuk mempelajari karsinogenik, namun bila dibandingkan kejadian neoplasma akibat induksi secara kimiawi, tumor spontaneous merupakan model yang tidak begitu baik untuk mempelajari mekanisme tumor pada manusia. Hal ini dikarenakan kejadian tumor secara spontan pada rodent memiliki sedikit perbedaan dengan kejadian pada manusia. Namun apabila dilihat dari segi keamanan dalam penggunaan bahan kimia secara kronis, peningkatan insidensi tumor spontaneous dapat menjadi indikator yang mengguntungkan dalam melihat efek paparan karsinogenik (Krinke et al., 2000).Tikus putih merupakan salah satu jenis hewan laboratorium yang telah dilaporkan insidensinya terhadap kejadian tumor secara spontan. Strain tikus putih yang sering mengalami tumor spontaneous adalah Fisher344, Wistar, dan Sprague-Dawley (Sumi et al., 1976; Yamate et al., 1987; Walsh dan Poteracki, 1994; dan Krinke et al., 2000). Kejadian tumor secara spontan pada tikus putih kebanyakan pada jenis kelamin betina. Salah satu tumor spontanius pada tikus putih yang memiliki arti penting dalam mempelajari kejadian tumor pada manusia yaitu tumor spontaneous pada sistem syaraf.

    ABSTRACT: 1,3-Butadiene is a known carcinogen and mutagen that acts through a variety of metabolic intermediates that react with DNA, forming stable and unstable lesions on dG, dA, dC, and dT. The N3 2'-deoxyuridine adducts are a highly stable, stereoisomeric mixture of adducts derived from the reaction of cytosine with the monoepoxide metabolite of butadiene, followed by spontaneous deamination. In this study, the phosphoramidites and subsequent oligodeoxynucleotides containing the N3 2'-deoxyuridine adducts have been constructed and characterized. Using a single-stranded shuttle vector DNA, the mutagenic potential of these adducts has been tested following replication in mammalian cells. Replication past the N3 2'-deoxyuridine adducts was found to be highly mutagenic with an overall mutation yield of approximately 97%. The major mutations that were observed were C to T transitions and C to A transversions. In vitro, these adducts posed a complete block to both the Klenow fragment of Escherichia coli polymerase I and polymerase epsilon, while these lesions significantly blocked polymerase delta. These data suggested a possible involvement of bypass polymerases in the in vivo replication of these lesions. Overall, these findings indicate that the N3 2'-deoxyuridine adducts are highly mutagenic lesions that may contribute to butadiene-mediated carcinogenesis.

    ABSTRACT: 1,3-Butadiene and chloroprene are multisite carcinogens in B6C3F1 mice with the strongest tumor response being the induction of lung neoplasms in females. Incidence of brain tumors in mice exposed to 1,3-butadiene was equivocal. This article reviews the efforts of our laboratory and others to uncover the mechanisms of butadiene and chloroprene induced lung and brain tumor responses in the B6C3F1 mouse. The formation of lung tumors by these chemicals involved mutations in the K-ras cancer gene and loss of heterozygosity in the region of K-ras on distal chromosome 6, while alterations in p53 and p16 were implicated in brain tumorigenesis.
