1. Guppies (Poecilia reticulata) were exposed for 96 h to 4-chloroaniline (4CA), 3-chloroaniline (3CA) and 2-chloroaniline (2CA) in a static exposure system. 4-Chloroacetanilide (N4CA), 3-chloroacetanilide (N3CA), and 2-chloroacetanilide (N2CA) were identified in test water as the respective biotransformation products. 2. Dependence of biotransformation on aqueous concentration was investigated with 4CA. The measured biotransformation product in water (N4CA) increased with concentration…

Biotransformation and toxicokinetics of trichloroanilines in fish in relation to their hydrophobicity
The elimination rate constants of 1,2,3- trichlorobenzene and 2,4,6-trichloroaniline, the isomer with the highest BCF value, were equal to the calculated elimination rate constant indicating that biotransformation does not influence the elimination of these compounds.
Toxicokinetics and metabolism of aniline and 4-chloroaniline in medaka (Oryzias latipes).
The toxicokinetics and in vivo metabolism of both aniline and 4-chloroaniline were best described by a two-compartment model that was consistent with the assumption that metabolites of the parent amines were accumulating in the fish.
Hepatic microsomal N-hydroxylation of aniline and 4-chloroaniline by rainbow trout (Onchorhyncus mykiss).
The demonstration of aniline and 4-chloroaniline N-hydroxylation by rainbow trout microsomes provides further insight into the high acute:subchronic toxicity ratios observed in fish exposed to these compounds.
N-acetyltransferase activity in rainbow trout liver and in vitro biotransformation of chlorinated anilines and benzenes in fish.
In vitro and in vivo N-acetylation of the chlorinated anilines turned out to be strikingly similar, and simple in vitro systems may be of use in assessing the potential of chemicals to bioconcentrate.
Formation and disposition of N-hydroxylated metabolites of aniline and nitrobenzene by isolated rat hepatocytes.
Results indicate that isolated rat hepatocytes are a reliable and sensitive system to demonstrate N-oxygenated metabolites of aromatic amino- and reduction of nitrocompounds.
The metabolism of phenol and substituted phenols in zebra fish.
1. The metabolism of five phenols in zebra fish was studied after uptake from the medium. The results showed no qualitative differences to other Cyprinid fish species, only the oxidation rate seemed
