Nitroreductases and glutathione transferases that act on 4-nitroquinoline 1-oxide and their differential induction by butylated hydroxyanisole in mice.


These studies concern the initial steps in 4-nitroquinoline 1-oxide (4NQO) metabolism in relation to mechanisms of anticarcinogenesis. Butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) administration by a protocol known to inhibit the pulmonary tumorigenicity of 4NQO in A/HeJ mice enhanced hepatic and pulmonary activities for 4NQO metabolism by two major pathways, conjugative… (More)
