Experimental Protocol

HepaRG cells were exposed to 15 selected compounds for 72 hours, i.e. 5 GTX (N-nitrosomorpholine, NMP; Hydroquinone, HQO; Hydrazine dihydrochloride, HHC; 2-acetylaminofluorene, TAF; 2-amino-3-methylimidazo(4,5-f)quinoline, AMQ), 5 NGTX (Fumonisin B1, FMB; Cyclosporine A, CsA; Acetamide, ACE; Diethylhexyl Phthalate, DHP; Ethanol, ETH), 5 NC (4-acetylaminofluorene, FAF; D,L-Menthol, DLM; Benzoin, BEN; Benzyl Alcohol, BEA; Triclosan, TRI). The IC10 concentrations (reducing cell viability by 10%) were determined by a 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide test (MTT test) (number of replicates n=3). Further RNA samples were generated by exposure of the HepaRG cells to the MTT-determined IC10 for a period of 24h and 72h. Complementary RNA targets were prepared and hybridized according to the manufacturer's procedures on high-density oligonucleotide microarrays (i.e. Affymetrix U133 Plus 2.0 GeneChip). Finally,alaysis was performed at a gene and pathway level. In the analysis, control (DMSO) samples were re-normalized with several sample groups and new processed data were created for each analysis. Thus, some of the Samples in this Series represent a re-analysis of other Samples and CEL files are identical.
