Benzo(a)pyrene toxicokinetics in the cricket following injection into the haemolymph.

Abstract

The metabolic disposition of (14)C-labelled benzo(a)pyrene (BP) in the cricket (Acheta domesticus) was investigated after injection into the haemolymph. (14)C-BP was taken up rapidly by the nerve cord, malpighian tubules, reproductive organs, gut, and muscle:cuticle of the cricket. The elimination half-lives of (14)C-BP in these tissues ranged from 8.9 to… (More)
