Previously, the secondary nitroalkane 2-nitropropane, a strong hepatocarcinogen in rats, had been shown to induce the formation of 8-aminoguanine in both DNA and RNA of rat liver through a sulfotransferase-mediated pathway. This pathway was postulated to convert the carcinogen into an aminating species [Sodum, R. S., et al. (1994) Chem. Res. Toxicol. 7, 344-351]. To submit this postulate to further test, we examined liver proteins of rats treated with 2-nitropropane, other carcinogenic…

Activation of propane 2-nitronate to a genotoxicant in V79-derived cell lines engineered for the expression of rat hepatic sulfotransferases.
The results corroborate the essential role of sulfotransferases in the metabolic activation of P2N to genotoxic products and identify two rat sulfotranferases which are capable of catalyzing the activation step.
Human phenol sulfotransferases hP-PST and hM-PST activate propane 2-nitronate to a genotoxicant.
Investigating the genotoxicity of P2N in various V79-derived cell lines engineered for expression of individual forms of human sulfotransferases shows that the human phenol sulfotranferases P-P ST and M-PST are capable of metabolically activating P2n and that the underlying mechanism is apparently identical to that resulting in the activation of P1N in rat liver, where 2-NP causes carcinomas.
Toxicity and metabolism of nitroalkanes and substituted nitroalkanes.
The toxicological profiles, especially as related to events occurring during metabolism and biotransformation, which contribute to toxicological end points of established nitroaliphatic compounds are reviewed.
2-Nitropropane-induced lipid peroxidation: antitoxic effects of melatonin.
Findings show that 2-NP induces LPO and that pharmacological levels of melatonin can reduce the toxicity of this hepatocarcinogen.
Hemoprotein-mediated reduction of nitrated DNA bases in the presence of reducing agents.
It is reported that hemin and hemoproteins, including hemoglobin and cytochrome c, mediate reduction of 8NG and 8NX to their corresponding amino analogues in the presence of reducing agents under physiologically relevant conditions, and it is shown that the reduction product 8-aminoguanine is persistent on DNA.
Analytical methods for 3-nitrotyrosine as a marker of exposure to reactive nitrogen species: a review.
Its role in biological systems may be more subtle with nitration of key tyrosine residues likely to profoundly affect cellular function such as signaling cascades and further advances are likely to be made in the localization of NTYR residues in peptide fragments using mass spectrometry.
Determination of 3-nitrotyrosine by high-pressure liquid chromatography with a dual-mode electrochemical detector.
A reverse-phase high-pressure liquid chromatographic method using a dual-mode electrochemical detector in series with a photodiode array detector has been developed to determine the levels of 3-nitrotyrosine in biological samples, observed in the blood plasma and lung cytosols of rats treated with the lung carcinogen and nitrating agent tetranitromethane.
Disposition of butanal oxime in rat following oral, intravenous and dermal administration.
The data are consistent with two distinct pathways of metabolism for BOX, (1) reduction to an imine, hydrolysis and subsequent conversion of butyraldehyde to 14CO2 and (2) CYP3A-catalysed dehydration of BOX to butyronitrile followed by CYP2E1-Catalysed release of cyanide.
Disposition of methyl ethyl ketoxime in the rat after oral, intravenous and dermal administration.
The disposition of 14C-methyl ethyl ketoxime (MEKO) was determined in the male F344 rat following oral, intravenous and dermal administration and biotransformed to at least five polar metabolites that could only be partially resolved by anion exchange chromatography.
Studies on the synthesis and biosynthesis of the fungal alkaloid necatorone
Abstract An alternative pathway for the biosynthesis of the fungal alkaloid necatorone has been studied using fluorine-labeled 3-(2-carboxyphenylamino)- l -tyrosine. Although no incorporation of this
