  • Two macrocyclic 14C-pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PA's), senecionine an seneciphylline, were studied regarding the distribution, excretion, transfer into milk, and covalent binding to hepatic macromolecules in BALB/c mice. After injection, radioactivity was rapidly excreted in the urine and feces (84% or greater) within 16 hr. The liver contained over 1.5% of the dose at 16 hr. A small amount, 0.04%, of the dose was transferred into the milk in 16 hr; the majority of radioactivity was found in the… CONTINUE READING
