Several vitamin A compounds have been tested for their ability to suppress formation of DNA adduct by the carcinogen benzo[a]pyrene (B[a]P) in an in vitro reaction catalyzed by rat liver microsomes. Retinol, retinal, 3-dehydroretinol and 3-hydroxyretinol were found to be effective inhibitors of adduct formation. Certain carotenoids that are precursors of… CONTINUE READING
