This study investigated the effects of C7 and C9 aliphatic (n-heptane, n-nonane), naphthenic (methylcyclohexane, 1,2,4-trimethylcyclohexane (TMCH)) and aromatic (toluene, 1,2,4-trimethylbenzene (TMB)) hydrocarbons on the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS) in rat brain synaptosome fraction. Methyl mercury (MeHg) was included as a positive control. Exposure of the synaptosomes to the hydrocarbons produced a concentration-dependent linear increase in… CONTINUE READING
