Dimethylnitrosamine-induced inhibition of hepatic protein synthesis in vitro and the effect of pretreatment with cystamine or pregnenolone-16alpha-carbonitrile.

Hepatic protein synthesis was investigated using a postmitochondrial supernatant system derived from the livers of rats that were given injections of a single dose of dimethylnitrosamine (DMN), 30 mg/kg. The time course and extent of DMN-induced inhibition in vitro were identical to those reported for the incorporation of amino acids into liver proteins in vivo, maximum inhibition being about 70% at 5 hr. Addition of specific inhibitors of chain initiation (polyinosinic acid and aurin tricarboxylic acid) to the postmitochrondrial supernatant system from DMN-treated rats caused only a slight additional inhibition, indicating that DMN predominantly affects translation by a block of initiation. Treatment with cystamine prior to DMN administration completely abolished the depression of protein synthesis and reduced by more than 90% the methylation by [14C]DMN of purine bases in liver DNA. Pretreatment with pregnenolone-16alpha-carbonitrile stimulated protein synthesis in controls but had no preventive effect in DMN-treated rats and did not reduce the extent of DNA alkylation in vivo.[1]
