Fungal metabolism and detoxification of the nitropolycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon 1-nitropyrene.


Nitropolycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are ubiquitous environmental pollutants, many of which are potent mutagens in bacterial and mammalian cells and carcinogenic to rodents. In this study, we investigated the fungal metabolism of 1-nitropyrene and determined the mutagenic activity of the metabolites toward Salmonella typhimurium TA98, TA98NR, and TA100… (More)
