Nitroaromatic Compounds, from Synthesis to Biodegradation
TLDR
This review provides an overview of the synthesis of both man-made and biogenic nitroaromatic compounds, the bacteria that have been identified to grow on and completely mineralize nitrobiotic compounds, and the pathways that are present in these strains. Expand
Synthesis of Oligonucleotides Containing 2′-Deoxyguanosine Adducts of Nitropyrenes
TLDR
Two different approaches to synthesize oligonucleotides containing the 2 ′-deoxyguanosine adducts formed by nitropyrenes are described, which can be used for incorporating both the major and minor adductS in DNA in high yield. Expand
Cyclopenta-Fused Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (CP-PAH). Recurring Combustion Effluents and Their Biological Significance
The convenient synthesis of a large set of (multiple) CP-PAH by Flash Vacuum Thermolysis (FVT), which have all been identified in combustion exhausts, allows their systematic assessment forExpand
DENSITY FUNCTIONAL THEORETICAL STUDY OF NITRATED POLYCYCLIC AROMATIC HYDROCARBONS
Nitro-polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (nitro-PAHs) are well-known mutagens. Correlations between the orientation of the nitro group relative to the plane of the aromatic ring and mutagenic effectsExpand
Synthetic Nitroimidazoles: Biological Activities and Mutagenicity Relationships
Parasitic and bacterial infections affecting the gastrointestinal tract represent a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Nitroheterocyclic drugs have been available since the earlyExpand
Oxidation of carcinogenic 2-nitroanisole by rat cytochromes P450 – similarity between human and rat enzymes
TLDR
The results show the participation of orthologous CYPs in 2-NA oxidation by both species and underline the suitability of rat species as a model to evaluate human susceptibility to 1-NA. Expand
Effects of nitrated-polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and diesel exhaust particle extracts on cell signalling related to apoptosis: possible implications for their mutagenic and carcinogenic effects.
TLDR
The most mutagenic and carcinogenic compound tested, 1,8-DNP, induced little cell death, despite the fact that this compound seemed to give the most DNA damage as judged by DNA adduct formation. Expand
Ab initio calculation of the excited states of nitropyrenes
The ubiquitous presence of nitro-derivatives of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons like pyrene in the environment is a source of preoccupation given the fact that many of them have been shown to beExpand
Chemical composition of PM2.5 in October 2017 Northern California wildfire plumes
Abstract. Wildfires have become more common and intense in the western US over recent decades due to a combination of historical land management practices and warming climate. Emissions fromExpand

Mutagenic activity of surface soil and quantification of 1,3-, 1,6-, and 1,8-dinitropyrene isomers in soil in Japan.
TLDR
It is suggested that surface soil is largely contaminated withmutagenic compounds and that DNP isomers are one class of major mutagenic and carcinogenic compounds contaminating surface soil. Expand
Mutagenicity of the 1-nitropyrene-DNA adduct N-(deoxyguanosin-8-yl)-1-aminopyrene in Escherichia coli located in a nonrepetitive CGC sequence.
TLDR
This work incorporated N-(deoxyguanosin-8-yl)-1-yl-1-aminopyrene into a nonrepetitive CGC sequence in single-stranded M13mp7L2 DNA and found that dG(AP) mutagenesis is highly dependent on the local DNA sequence. Expand
C8-guanine adduct-induced stabilization of a -1 frame shift intermediate in a nonrepetitive DNA sequence.
TLDR
A relationship between the thermodynamic stability of the adduct in DNA and the errors that occurred during replicative bypass by the human DNA polymerases is suggested. Expand
Comparative metabolism of 1-, 2-, and 4-nitropyrene by human hepatic and pulmonary microsomes.
TLDR
The first report on the comparative metabolism of mono-NP in humans clearly demonstrate that the role of specific human P450 enzymes in catalyzing oxidative and reductive pathways of Mono-NP is dependent upon the position of the nitro group. Expand
DNA adduct formation from the mutagenic air pollutant 3-nitrobenzanthrone.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that 3-nitrobenzanthrone binds covalently to DNA after metabolic activation, forming multiple DNA adducts in vitro all of which are reduction products. Expand
Formation and persistence of DNA adducts during and after a long-term administration of 2-nitrofluorene.
TLDR
Four major DNA adducts are induced by NF oral administration, and one is identified as dG-N2-AAF and another one asdG-C8-AF, which may play different roles in NF-induced tumor formation. Expand
Nitroreduction of 4-nitropyrene is primarily responsible for DNA adduct formation in the mammary gland of female CD rats.
TLDR
Results indicate that nitroreduction is primarily responsible for DNA adduct formation in the liver and, especially, in the mammary gland which is the organ susceptible to carcinogenesis by this environmental agent. Expand
Oxidative DNA damage by a metabolite of carcinogenic and reproductive toxic nitrobenzene in the presence of NADH and Cu(II).
TLDR
It is suggested that nitrosobenzene can be reduced non-enzymatically by NADH, and the redox cycle reaction resulted in oxidative DNA damage due to the copper-oxygen complex, derived from the reaction of Cu(I) with H2O2. Expand
Role of human N-acetyltransferases, NAT1 or NAT2, in genotoxicity of nitroarenes and aromatic amines in Salmonella typhimurium NM6001 and NM6002.
Human NAT1 and NAT2 genes were subcloned into pACYC184 vector and the plasmids thus obtained were introduced into Salmonella typhimurium O-acetyltransferase-deficient strain NM6000 (TA1538/1,Expand
An unusual DNA adduct derived from the powerfully mutagenic environmental contaminant 3-nitrobenzanthrone.
TLDR
The covalent binding of an N-hydroxy metabolite of the powerfully mutagenic 3-nitrobenzanthrone to 2'-deoxyguanosine (dG) and calf thymus DNA has been investigated in vitro and the preferred conformation of the adduct has been shown to be syn by 1H and 13C NMR. Expand
