Descripción general

7,12-Dimethylbenz[a]anthracene belongs to the category of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. It is a carcinogenic organic pollutant generated from the incomplete combustion of gasoline and coal.


7,12-Dimethylbenz[a]anthracene was used:
  • to study the effects of Cimicifuga racemosa (CR) extract on the growth of mammary tumor induced by 7,12-Dimethylbenz[a]anthracene
  • in the study to compare the anti-carcinogenic properties of four red wine polyphenols as an initiator to cause skin cancer in CD-1 mouse model
  • to induce epithelial carcinogenicity in order to study the apoptotic, proliferating and p12doc-1 profiles of normal, hyperplastic, dysplastic and malignant oral epithelium in the cheek pouch of the Syrian hamster
  • to cause mammary tumors to examine the causes and prevention of triacylglycerol accumulation in rat liver due to tamoxifen

Acciones bioquímicas o fisiológicas

7,12-Dimethylbenz[a]anthracene has been found to be cytotoxic in nature, having carcinogenic properties. It also shows selective necrosis and hemorrhaging in the adrenal gland along with an inhibitory effect on plasma alkaline phosphatase levels. Its damaging effects are due to its ability to form charge transfer complexes by donating electrons to appropriate electron acceptors.

Disruption of the homeostatic balance between proliferation and apoptosis is widely believed to contribute to human oral carcinogenesis. Using the Syrian hamster oral cancer model, we examined normal, hyperplastic, dysplastic and malignant oral epithelium for the fraction of apoptotic, proliferating

Carcinogenesis and Epigenetics

Cancer research has revealed that the classical model of carcinogenesis, a three step process consisting of initiation, promotion, and progression, is not complete.
