Liver cytosols from 12-day-old male C57BL/6 X C3H/HeJ F1 (B6C3F1) mice contain 3'-phosphoadenosine-5'-phosphosulfate (PAPS)-dependent sulfotransferase activity for N-hydroxy-4-aminoazobenzene and N-hydroxy-N-methyl-4-aminoazobenzene. No acetyl co-enzyme A-dependent transacetylase activity for these hydroxylamines was detected in the cytosols. Pentachlorophenol (PCP) and 2,6-dichloro-4-nitrophenol were only moderately active inhibitors of the sulfotransferase activity; at a 100-microM… CONTINUE READING
