Enterochromaffin Cells definition: A subtype of enteroendocrine cells found in the gastrointestinal MUCOSA, particularly in the glands of PYLORIC ANTRUM; DUODENUM; and ILEUM. These cells secrete mainly SEROTONIN and some neuropeptides. Their secretory granules stain readily with silver (argentaffin stain).
Enterochromaffin Cell definition: A group of basal granular cells of the gut whose granules stain readily with silver and chromium salts. The cells secrete serotonin, substance P, and enkephalins. (MeSH)
Argentaffin Cell definition: An enteroendocrine cell located in the basilar portions of the glands of the gastrointestinal tract. The granules in the cell stain readily with chromium and silver salts without pretreatment with a reducing agent.
Amine Oxidase (Copper-Containing) definition: A group of enzymes including those oxidizing primary monoamines, diamines, and histamine. They are copper proteins, and, as their action depends on a carbonyl group, they are sensitive to inhibition by semicarbazide. EC 1.4.3.6.
Monoamine Oxidase definition: An enzyme that catalyzes the oxidative deamination of naturally occurring monoamines. It is a flavin-containing enzyme that is localized in mitochondrial membranes, whether in nerve terminals, the liver, or other organs. Monoamine oxidase is important in regulating the metabolic degradation of catecholamines and serotonin in neural or target tissues. Hepatic monoamine oxidase has a crucial defensive role in inactivating circulating monoamines or those, such as tyramine, that originate in the gut and are absorbed into the portal circulation. (From Goodman and Gilman's, The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed, p415) EC 1.4.3.4.
BRD2 Gene definition: This gene plays a role in signal transduction and regulation of transcription. It is involved in brain development and spermatogenesis.
Benzidine Containing Dye definition: A dye consisting of a diazotized benzidine nucleus that can have a wide variety of colors depending on the chemical groups attached at the diazo linkages. Benzidine based dyes are mainly used to color textiles, leather and paper but are also found in the rubber, plastic, soap, hair dye and petroleum industries. All benzidine containing dyes are considered human carcinogens based on the fact that they are metabolized in vivo to form free benzidine. (NCI05)
Phenacetin-Containing Mixture definition: Analgesic mixtures containing phenacetin are no longer available in the United States. These are known to be human carcinogens. (NCI05)
3,3-Dimethoxybenzidine Containing Dye definition: A dye consisting of a diazotized dimethoxybenzidine nucleus that can have a wide variety of colors depending on the chemical groups attached at the diazo linkages. 3,3'-Dimethoxybenzidine containing dyes are mainly used to color textiles, leather, rubber and paper. All 3,3'-dimethoxybenzidine containing dyes are reasonably anticipated to be human carcinogens based on the fact that dimethoxybenzidine-based dyes are metabolized in vivo to form free 3,3'-dimethoxybenzidine. 3,3'-dimethoxybenzidine is possibly carcinogenic in humans. (NCI05)
3,3-Dimethylbenzidine Containing Dye definition: A dye consisting of a diazotized dimethylbenzidine nucleus that can have a wide variety of colors depending on the chemical groups attached at the diazo linkages. 3,3'-Dimethylbenzidine containing dyes are mainly used to color textiles, as biological stains and are used in color photography. All 3,3'-dimethylbenzidine containing dyes are possible mutagens and are reasonably anticipated to be human carcinogens based on the fact that dimethylbenzidine-based dyes are metabolized in vivo to form free 3,3'-dimethylbenzidine. 3,3'-dimethylbenzidine is possibly carcinogenic in humans. (NCI05)
