The proposed mechanism of action of the toxic halogenated aromatics, typified by 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD), involves the initial binding to a high-affinity, low-capacity, cytosolic receptor protein. Previous studies have shown that several 4'-halo-2,3,4,5-tetrachlorobiphenyls bind to the TCDD receptor and that a lateral substituent on both phenyl rings is required for activity. Using an extended series of eighteen 4'-substituted-2,3,4,5-tetrachlorobiphenyls as probes, the… CONTINUE READING
