their metabolic activation. In the case of acetylaminofluoro it appears that the ultimate carcinogen is the sulphate ester of the N-hydroxy metabolite. The dialkylnitro-samines represent a class of chemically inert, potent carcinogens of simple structure. The mechanism of activation of these compounds involves metabolic conversion to a monoalkyl nitrosamine… CONTINUE READING
