Example text

Mutagenic agents can cause cancer (when applied over a longer period), as has been reported for PAs, AA, cycasin and ptaquiloside; this topic is explored in more detail in the next paragraph. Interference with DNA, protein biosynthesis and related enzymes can induce complex chain reactions in cells. Among them, apoptosis, that leads to programmed cell death, is a very important process. 6) and even in some single cell organisms, such as trypanosomes (Rosenkranz and Wink, 2008). 2 Cytotoxic properties of SM The interaction of SM with a central target of cells, such as DNA/RNA, protein biosynthesis, energy generation or cell division can lead to cell death, especially apoptosis.
