Mechanism of peroxidative activation of the bladder carcinogen 2-amino-4-(5-nitro-2-furyl)-thiazole (ANFT): comparison with benzidine.

The mechanism of activation of the bladder carcinogen 2-amino-4-(5-nitro-2-furyl)thiazole (ANFT) was investigated by comparison with benzidine. In comparison with benzidine, ANFT has a higher electrochemical potential (approximately 700 mV) and is less effective as a reducing co-substrate for either prostaglandin H synthase (PHS) or horseradish peroxidase… CONTINUE READING
