Metabolism of the flame retardant plasticizer tris(2-chloroethyl)phosphate by human and rat liver preparations.


Previous studies indicate that tris(2-chloroethyl)phosphate (TCP) preferentially produces hippocampal brain lesions in female versus male rats, and the expression of these lesions is inversely related to the in vivo rate of TCP metabolism. In the present studies, TCP (0.17 mM in all incubations) was metabolized in vitro by liver slices and microsomes from… (More)
