Non-mutagenic carcinogens are primarily hydrophobic.

Abstract

There is no unique mechanism to explain the activity in animals of 'non-genotoxic' carcinogens. In this they differ from 'genotoxic' carcinogens that are DNA reactive. In the present study it is reported that non-mutagenic carcinogens, as a group, have significantly higher computed octanol/water partition coefficients than mutagenic ones. This property of… (More)
