The DNA adducts formed during incubation of the hepatocarcinogen N-hydroxy-2-acetylaminofluorene with Salmonella typhimurium tester strain TA1538 were investigated to determine if the covalently bound products were identical to those adducts found in rat liver DNA and to establish the biological significance of the adducts in a mutational assay. When bacteria were exposed to N-hydroxy-2-acetylaminofluorene in the presence of a 9,000 x g supernatant from a rat liver homogenate (S9), only one adduct was detected. This adduct had chromatographic, pH-dependent partitioning, and UV spectral characteristics identical to those of N-(deoxyguanosin-8-yl)-2-aminofluorene. In the absence of S9 activation the same product was detected, but at a 85-90% lower level, which indicates that S. typhimurium also may be capable of metabolizing N-hydroxy-2-acetylaminofluorene to a reactive electrophile. When incubations were conducted with N-hydroxy-2-aminofluorene in the absence of the activation system, N-(deoxyguanosin-8-yl)-2-aminofluorene again was the major adduct. At equimolar concentrations, the arylhydroxylamine was approximately 10 times more efficient than the arylhydroxamic acid in inducing reversions in the bacteria.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
