1. The metabolic fates of the naturally occurring food flavours trans-anethole and estragole, and their synthetic congener p-propylanisole, have been investigated in human volunteers using the [methoxy-14C]-labelled compounds. The doses used were close to those encountered in the diet, 1 mg, 100 micrograms and 100 micrograms respectively. 2. In each case, the major routes of elimination of 14C were in the urine and in the expired air as 14CO2. 3. Urinary metabolites were separated by solvent…

Matrix modulation of the bioactivation of estragole by constituents of different alkenylbenzene-containing herbs and spices and physiologically based biokinetic modeling of possible in vivo effects.
TLDR
The PBBK-model-based predictions indicate that the reduction of estragole bioactivation in rat and human by co-administration of the flavonoids is dependent on whether the intracellular liver concentrations of the Flavonoids can reach their Ki values.
Phase II Metabolism of Asarone Isomers In Vitro and in Humans Using HPLC-MS/MS and HPLC-qToF/MS
TLDR
The excretion rate of 42% as erythro and threo-asar one diols and respective asarone diol glucuronides suggests that epoxide formation is a key step in beta-asarone metabolism, but further, as yet unknown metabolites should also be taken into consideration.
Matrix modulation of the toxicity of alkenylbenzenes, studied by an integrated approach using in vitro, in vivo, and physiologically based biokinetic models
TLDR
The results predict that co-administration of estragole at a level inducing hepatic tumours in vivo (50 mg/kg bw) with nevadensin at a molar ratio of 0.06 results in almost 100% inhibition of the ultimate carcinogen 1′-sulfooxyestragole when assuming 100% uptake of nevdensin.

Structure-activity studies of the carcinogenicities in the mouse and rat of some naturally occurring and synthetic alkenylbenzene derivatives related to safrole and estragole.
TLDR
Twenty-three naturally occurring and synthetic alkenylbenzene derivatives structurally related to the hepatocarcinogen safrole were assayed for their hepatocARCinogenicity in mice to identify benign skin tumors that could be promoted with croton oil.
Hepatocarcinogenicity of estragole (1-allyl-4-methoxybenzene) and 1'-hydroxyestragole in the mouse and mutagenicity of 1'-acetoxyestragole in bacteria.
TLDR
Estragole induced hepatocellular carcinomas by 15 months in 23 and 39% of the mice that received total doses of 4.4 and 5.2 mumoles, respectively, and lived to an age of 12 months or more, and 1'-Acetoxyallybenzene had little or no activity in either of these tests.
Structures of the DNA adducts formed in mouse liver after administration of the proximate hepatocarcinogen 1'-hydroxyestragole.
TLDR
All four adducts in the mouse liver can be accounted for by the reaction of a metabolically derived ester of 1′-hydroxyestragole with purine bases in DNA by SN1, SN2, or SN2′ mechanisms.
