Metabolism of 2,3,4',6-tetrachlorobiphenyl: formation and tissue localization of mercapturic acid pathway metabolites in mice.

Abstract

2,3,4',6-Tetrachlorobiphenyl (tetraCB) and the corresponding 14C-labelled compound (14C-tetraCB) were synthesized. Two reference compounds, 4-methylthio- and 4-methylsulphonyl-2,3,4',6-tetrachlorobiphenyl were also prepared and characterized. TetraCB and 35S-cysteine were given to groups of female mice. Formation of methyl[35S]sulphonyl-tetraCB was… (More)
