Previous work has shown that the hepatopancreas of the spiny lobster (Panulirus argus) contains a mixed-function oxidase system capable of catalyzing the monooxygenation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons to highly toxic products similar to those formed by mammalian tissues. Studies were designed to determine the ability of the spiny lobster to conjugate the phenolic compounds 4-methylumbelliferone, p-nitrophenol, beta-naphthol, and 3-hydroxybenzo[a]pyrene with endogenous molecules.
