Toxicity of Pyrrolizidine Alkaloids
A new class of metabolite, with a pyrrole-like structure, has been demonstrated in the tissues of animals poisoned by pyrrolizidine alkaloids. There is some correlation between the degree ofExpand

Simple procedures for preparing putative toxic metabolites of pyrrolizidine alkaloids.
New procedures are described for converting unsaturated pyrrolizidine alkaloids to chemically reactive pyrrolic esters (dehydro-alkaloids), which are probable primary toxic metabolites formed fromExpand

An epidemic of veno-occlusive disease of the liver in Afghanistan. Pathologic features.
A large outbreak of veno-occlusive disease occurred in Afghanistan in which approximately 7,800 in a population of 35,000 subjects were estimated to have been affected. It was caused by consumptionExpand

The conversion of the pyrrolizidine alkaloid retrorsine to pyrrolic derivatives in vivo and in vitro and its acute toxicity to various animal species.
Abstract 1. (1)|The acute toxicity of retrorsine to mice, hamsters, guinea pigs, fowl and quail has been determined. Approximate LD 50 values varied from 65 mg/kg in the mouse to 279 mg/kg in quail.Expand

Pyrrolic and N-oxide metabolites formed from pyrrolizidine alkaloids by hepatic microsomes in vitro: relevance to in vivo hepatotoxicity.
An analytical method of improved sensitivity has enabled measurements to be made of N-oxide as well as pyrrolic metabolites formed from a range of unsaturated pyrrolizidine alkaloids in hepaticExpand

Pyrrolic metabolites from non-toxic pyrrolizidine alkaloids.
THERE is evidence that some or all of the cytotoxic effects of unsaturated pyrrolizidine alkaloids are, in some animals, caused by pyrrolic metabolites formed by enzymatic dehydro-genation of theExpand
