Example text

General fertility and reproductive performance (segment I or phase I) tests are usually done in rats, with two or three doses (20 rats per sex per dose) of the test chemical. If three doses are used, the highest dose may show some evidence of maternal toxicity, but neither of the lower two doses should produce any evidence of maternal toxicity. Males are given the chemical 60 days and females 14 days prior to mating, and for the females this is continued throughout gestation and lactation. Typical observations made are the percentage of the females that become pregnant, the number of stillborn and live offspring, and the weight, growth, survival, and general condition of the offspring during the first 3 weeks following birth.

6 Developmental and Reproductive Toxicity Four types of animal tests are utilized to examine the potential of a chemical to affect development and/or reproduction. General fertility and reproductive performance (segment I or phase I) tests are usually done in rats, with two or three doses (20 rats per sex per dose) of the test chemical. If three doses are used, the highest dose may show some evidence of maternal toxicity, but neither of the lower two doses should produce any evidence of maternal toxicity.

This epoxide is highly electrophilic and will react quickly with nucleophilic sites in the cell. One such site is the nitrogen in position 7 of the DNA base, guanine. Thus, one consequence of aflatoxin exposure will be the formation of aflatoxin-N7-guanine adducts in DNA (Eaton and Groopman 1994). (Figure 8). Since this adduct is bulky, it will change the shape of the double-stranded DNA molecule, which may lead to mispairing of bases on the strand or to errors in DNA replication, typically base pair substitutions.
