Previous work has shown that the rate and stereochemistry of naphthalene epoxidation correlates with differences in susceptibility to cytotoxicity. The development of methods for measuring epoxide formation in vivo could provide a marker for assessing events critical to naphthalene cytotoxicity that are applicable to humans. Here, urinary diastereomeric(More)
Acrolein, 3-oxopropyl glutathione (oxoPrGSH), and S-3-hydroxypropyl N-acetylcysteine (hydroxyPrMCA) are confirmed metabolic products of cyclophosphamide. Other potential metabolites include the mercapturic acid S-3-oxopropyl N-acetylcysteine (oxoPrMCA), its sulfoxide, and their corresponding diacid forms. The reactivity of acrolein would appear to preclude(More)
