Genotoxic = C- T > 19% We were not able to examine lung cells since their lower DNA-content and thermolability made them unsuitable for the alkaline elution method performed in vitro (Brendler 1989). These results, however, show that NDMA is well activated by the major target organ liver, but not by a second target organ kidney. This may be a reflection of the lower activating capability of this organ. Funher studies were carried out in vivo to assess the role of pharamcokinetics on organ specifity.

Twenty-four hours after plating the culutres are exposed to the test chemical. Toxicity is determined in a day-7 colony forming assay (right side of Figure 1). To measure transformation (left side of diagram), selection for carcinogen induced enhanced growth variants (EGV) is begun 4 days after carcinogen exposure by selective removal of the 3T3 fibroblasts or, in the case of the defined media system, by switching to growth factor free media containing serum. This induces terminal differentiation in the normal tracheobronchial cells (Terzaghi, 1989) but not in the "initiated" cells.
