Recombinant models for assessing the role of GSTM1 in styrene-7,8-oxide mutagenicity

Shield, Alison; Sanderson, Barbara


Styrene-7,8-oxide (SO) is a highly reactive epoxide able to undergo reactions with endogenous nucleophiles, such as DNA. SO is inactivated by glutathione-S-transferase M1 (GSTM1). This detoxification enzyme is absent in approximately one-half of Caucasian (49%) populations. A GSTM1 recombinant human lymphoblastoid cell line (FB7) was generated from a GSTM1 negative parental cell line (WIL2NS). GSTM1 status was determined using RT-PCR and immunochemistry. Cells were challenged with a range of SO...[Show more]
