In our previous study, we demonstrated that dioxin-like activity in sulfuric-acid-treated extracts of Japanese indoor dust was higher than the activity in contaminated sediments. In the current study, we used high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) fractionation in combination with the dioxin-responsive chemical-activated luciferase gene expression (DR-CALUX) assay and gas chromatography-high-resolution mass spectrometry (GC-HRMS) to quantitatively evaluate dioxin-like compounds in indoor… CONTINUE READING
