Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are environmental pollutants which may cause cancer and require metabolic activation to exert their carcinogenic effects. One pathway of activation involves the dihydrodiol dehydrogenase-catalyzed oxidation of non-K region trans-dihydrodiols to yield catechols, which autoxidize to form reactive o-quinones. As a step(More)
Analysis of the reaction between 2'-deoxyadenosine and 4-oxo-2-nonenal by liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry revealed the presence of three major products (adducts A(1), A(2), and B). Adducts A(1) and A(2) were isomeric; they interconverted at room temperature, and they each readily dehydrated to form adduct B. The mass spectral characteristics of(More)
Analysis of the reaction between 2'-deoxyadenosine and 13-hydroperoxylinoleic acid by liquid chromatography/constant neutral loss mass spectrometry revealed the presence of two major products (adducts A and B). Adduct A was shown to be a mixture of two isomers (A(1) and A(2)) that each decomposed with the loss of water to form adduct B. The mass spectral(More)
On-line reversed-phase capillary liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry with electrospray ionization was used for the detection of 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine (PhIP) adducts of DNA and compared to analysis by 32P-postlabeling. Structural information was obtained on low nanogram levels of a synthetic N-(deoxyguanosin-8-yl)-PhIP(More)
Two major products (adducts A and B) from the reaction of 2-deoxyguanosine (dGuo) with 13-hydroperoxylinoleic acid were detected by liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS). Adducts A and B were also the major products formed enzymatically when dGuo was incubated in the presence of linoleic acid and lipoxygenase. The mass spectral fragmentation(More)
An assay for the determination of the neuromuscular blocking agents pancuronium bromide and vecuronium bromide in plasma or urine has been developed. This method is based on syringe application of sample extracts to the moving belt surface and single metastable transition monitoring of the elimination of acetic acid from the ion of m/z 543 during chemical(More)
