Estrogenic and anti-androgenic activity of nitrophenols in diesel exhaust particles (DEP).
Anti-androgenicity is found in all four nitrophenols isolated from diesel exhaust particles (DEP) because these compounds are alkylphenolic derivatives that might mimic hormones. Expand
Estrogenic activities of chemicals in diesel exhaust particles.
It was found that the neutral fraction of the hexane extract of DEP contains dibenzothiophene derivatives, one of which, 4,6-dimethyldibenz Rothiophene, possesses estrogenic activity. Expand
Estrogenic Activities of Nitrophenols in Diesel Exhaust Particles1
It is demonstrated that PNMC and PNMPP in DEP have estrogenic activity both in vitro and in vivo and might therefore be considered as endocrine-disrupting chemicals. Expand
Isolation of nitrophenols from diesel exhaust particles (DEP) as vasodilatation compounds.
The compounds in diesel exhaust particles (DEP) that are responsible for vasodilatation were isolated and characterized for the first time and caused dilatation of rat thoracic artery and the other two nitrophenols also showed vasodILatation activities. Expand
Estrogenic and anti-estrogenic activities of two types of diesel exhaust particles.
Both type-1 and type-2 DEP possess estrogenic and anti-estrogenic activities, and extracts of both types decreased the activity of estrogen. Expand
Dialkyl (3-pyridyl) boranes
Dialkyl (3-pyridyl) boranes (2) were synthesized by the iodination of lithium trialkyl (3-pyridyl) borates, prepared from trialkylboranes and 3-lithiopyridine. Although 2 was resistant toExpand
Immunohistological study for estrogenic activities of nitrophenols in diesel exhaust particles
Results clearly show the estrogenic activity of PNMC and PNMPP by cell proliferation on the uterine luminal epithelium as well as vasodilators and xenoestrogens. Expand
Investigation of Vasodilatory Substances in Diesel Exhaust Particles (DEP): Isolation and Identification of Nitrophenol Derivatives
Vasodilatory compounds in the weak acidic fraction of a benzene extract of diesel exhaust particles (DEP) were fractionated by column chromatography through silica gel, and the chemical structures ofExpand
