These studies test the hypothesis that in n-hexane neuropathy the gamma-diketone metabolite 2,5-hexanedione (2,5-HD) results in covalent crosslinking of neurofilaments via nucleophilic attack on oxidized pyrrole rings formed from the reaction of 2,5-HD with epsilon-amino groups of lysyl residues. The 2,5-HD analogue and(More)
The neurotoxicity of the dl and meso diastereomers of the gamma-diketone 3,4-dimethyl-2,5-hexanedione (DMHD) was studied to determine if the difference in rates of pyrrole derivatization would influence the clinical and morphological appearance of the neuropathy associated with these gamma-diketones. Two groups of rats received 0.2 mmol/kg/day(More)
