Peptide conjugates of benzene and toluene metabolites in English ryegrass

Abstract

Biotransformation of [1-6-14C]benzene and [1-14C]toluene in English ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) seedlings was investigated. Vapors of these compounds were absorbed by the leaves of this plant. Benzene and toluene were oxidized, forming phenol and benzoic acid, respectively. A portion of phenol and benzoic acid was bound by low-molecular-weight peptides… (More)
