NCRC-Role of Aryl Hydrocarbon Receptor Polymorphisms on TCDD-Mediated Suppression of Human B Cell Function

April 26, 2016

Webinar Recording | N. E. Kaminski Presentationpdf icon

Description: Most intraspecies variation in sensitivity to the toxic effects of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD), including suppression of antibody responses, in murine models is due to single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) gene. Investigations using primary human peripheral blood B cells from healthy donors led to the finding that approximately one in six donors examined did not show suppression by TCDD of the primary IgM response in an in vitro B cell activation assay. The underlying reason for variation in sensitivity to TCDD-induced suppression of IgM responses among humans is not well understood, but is thought, in part, to be a result of different polymorphic forms of the AhR expressed by different individuals. To be discussed will be investigations into the functional properties of human AhR variants, which were examined in the human SKW 6.4 B cell line on B cell function as well as biochemical endpoints characteristic of AhR signaling.

2011 NCSOT Fall Meeting and PARC Award

The North Carolina regional chapter (NCSOT) held its Annual Fall Meeting on September 22, 2011, on the campus of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. The theme of the meeting was Epigenetics and Toxicology. There were approximately 110 people in attendance. The meeting began with a luncheon and career panel discussion for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. The invited panelists included Ms. Sharon Ambrose (Charles River Laboratories), Dr. Jamie DeWitt (East Carolina University), Dr. J. Greg Falls (GlaxoSmithKline), Ms. Marla Goonan, Dr. Victor J. Johnson, (Burleson Research Technologies), Dr. MaryJane Selgrade (ICF International) and Dr. Larry Sheets (Bayer Crop Science). The Fall Meeting started with a brief welcome and business meeting conducted by NCSOT President Darol Dodd. Dr. C. Lisa Kurtz of The Hamner Institutes for Health Sciences (mentor Alison Harrill) was awarded first place in NCSOT’s President’s Award for Research Competition (PARC). The PARC is an annual award based on extended abstracts submitted by post-doctoral members of NCSOT. Dr. Kurtz presented a 15 min talk on her research, entitled “Population Based Toxicity Assessment Implicates Mitochondrial Dysfunction as an Early Event in Isoniazid-Induced Liver Injury”. Dr. Nicole Kleinstreuer of the US EPA (mentor Tom Knudsen) won second place, and Dr. Yan Sun of NIEHS (mentor Michael Waalkes) won third place in this competition. The Fall Meeting then moved on to the plenary session coordinated by NCSOT Vice-President Michael Hughes. Presentations focused on new discoveries about the role of epigenetic alterations in environmental health and challenges that regulators will face as they incorporate epigenetics into evaluations of safety and risk. Invited speakers (and titles) included Dr. Dana Dolinoy of the University of Michigan (Environmental Epigenetics: From Mice to Men), Dr. Rebecca Fry of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Arsenic and the Epigenome) and Dr. Doug Wolf of the US EPA (Issues to Consider Regarding Incorporating Epigenetic Evaluation into Safety and Risk Assessment).

NCSOT’s President’s Award for Research Competition winners (L to R), Dr. C. Lisa Kurtz (1st Place), Dr. Nicole Kleinstreuer (2nd Place), and Dr. Yang Sun (3rd Place) presented by NCSOT President, Dr. Darol Dodd.
NCSOT’s invited speakers (L to R), Dr. Dana Dolinoy, Dr. Rebecca Fry, host NCSOT Vice President Dr. Michael Hughes, and Dr. Douglas Wolf.
