Preventive effects of chlorophyllin fixed on chitosan towards DNA adduct formation of 3-amino-1-methyl-5H-pyrido [4,3-b]indole in CDF1 mice.

Abstract

Chlorophyllin, a water-soluble derivative of chlorophyll, is known to suppress the mutagenic and carcinogenic action of compounds having polycyclic structures, e.g., heterocyclic amines and aflatoxin B1. Recently, we reported that chlorophyllin fixed on chitosan (chl-chitosan), which is insoluble in water, can efficiently and tightly trap these heterocyclic… (More)
