C3H10T1/2CL8 (C3H10T1/2) mouse embryo fibroblasts were used to study the in vitro carcinogenic activities of dibenzo[a,l]pyrene (DB[a,l]P) and benzo[a]pyrene (B[a]P). The morphological transforming activities of these rodent carcinogens were compared using replicate concentration-response studies. In concentration ranges where both polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were active, DB[a,l]P proved to be four to 12 times as potent as B[a]P based on concentration. At lower concentrations DB[a,l]P was active at 0.10 and 0.20 microM, concentrations where B[a]P was inactive. This makes DB[a,l]P the most potent non-methylated PAH evaluated to date in C3H10T1/2 cells. DNA adducts of DB[a,l]P in C3H10T1/2 cells were analyzed by both TLC and TLC/HPLC 32P-postlabeling methods using mononucleotide 3'-phosphate adduct standards derived from the reactions of anti-DB[a,l]P-11,12-diol-13,14-epoxide (anti-DB[a,l]PDE) and syn-DB[a,l]P-11,12-diol-13,14-epoxide (syn-DB[a,l]PDE) with deoxyadenosine 3'-monophosphate and deoxyguanosine 3'-monophosphate. All of the DNA adducts observed in C3H10T1/2 cells treated with DB[a,l]P were identified as being derived from the metabolism of DB[a,l]P to its fjord region diol epoxides through DB[a,l]P-11,12-diol. The predominant adduct was identified as an anti-DB[a,l]PDE-deoxyadenosine adduct. Other major adducts were anti-DB[a,l]PDE-deoxyguanosine and syn-DB[a,l]PDE-deoxyadenosine adducts with minor amounts of syn-DB[a,l]PDE-deoxyguanosine adducts. These DNA adduct data are consistent with similar findings of DB[a,l]PDE-deoxyadenosine adducts in mouse skin studies and human mammary cells in culture.
