MCF-7 cell cultures were treated for 24 h with benzo[a]pyrene (B[a]P), lindane (gamma-hexachlorocyclohexane), or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) congeners (47, 153, 183, and 209), then fixed in ethanol and interrogated using attenuated total reflection Fourier-transform infrared (ATR-FTIR) spectroscopy. Mode of action was further studied by examining if test agents stimulated cell growth or altered CYP1A1 expression. Bimodal dose response curves were observed when MCF-7 cells were treated with PBDEs or lindane. The first peak distribution was associated with lower doses (10(-12) M to 10(-9) M), while the second occurred only after MCF-7 cells were exposed to concentrations >10(-9) M. Cellular alterations associated with low-dose PBDEs were mainly due to lipid and secondary protein structural changes, whereas lindane induced DNA/RNA effects as well.
