|Title:||Alterations of phosphatidylinositol signal transduction pathway in hepatic mitochondria following aflatoxin B1 administration*|
Bhattacharya, R K
|Abstract:||A single dose of aflatoxin B1 (7mg/kg body wt) to male rats significantly stimulated the turnover of mitochondrial phosphoinositides 1-7 hr following its administration. The elevation of phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5-trisphosphate was most pronounced whose level continued to be moderately high even at 17 hr period. The level of diacylglycerol showed a marked increase from 4hr till 7hr after carcinogen treatment, whereas that of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate recorded an increase with a maximum at 7 hr foil wed by a gradual decrease to near normal level at 24 hr period. The activation of phosphatidylinositol cycle together with an activation of PI 3-kinase, whose product PIP3 is known to be involved in apoptosis might contribute to the early step in the manifestation of toxicity and/or carcinogenicity.|
