Abstract A putative haematotoxic and leukaemogenic metabolite of benzene, 1,4-benzoquinone (1,4-BQ), reacts rapidly with macromolecules. The authors previously characterized levels of the albumin (Alb) adduct (1,4-BQ-Alb) of this reactive species in populations of workers exposed to benzene. Since high levels of 1,4-BQ-Alb were also measured in unexposed workers from those investigations, the current study was initiated to determine potential sources of 1,4-BQ in the general population.

Albumin Adducts of Electrophilic Benzene Metabolites in Benzene-Exposed and Control Workers
TLDR
Although albumin adducts of BO and the benzoquinones reflect exposures to benzene > or = 1 ppm, they would not be useful biomarkers of exposure at ambient levels of benzene, which tend to be < 0.01 ppm, or in those working populations where exposures are consistently < 1 ppm.
Biomonitoring Human Albumin Adducts: The Past, the Present, and the Future
TLDR
The history of Alb as a target protein for adduction to environmental and dietary genotoxicants, pesticides, and herbicides, common classes of medicinal drugs, and endogenous electrophiles, and the emerging analytical mass spectrometry technologies to identify Alb-toxicant adducts in humans are highlighted.
A sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for adducts of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons with human serum albumin.
TLDR
The sandwich ELISA will be useful for screening PAH exposures in large epidemiologic studies and can be extended to other adducts for which capture antibodies are available.
Hemoglobin Adducts of Benzene Oxide in Neonatal and Adult Dried Blood Spots
TLDR
A simple method to isolate Hb from dried blood spot with high recovery and purity using the addition of ethanol to aqueous driedBlood spot extracts is reported, proving the concept that dried blood Spot–derived proteins can be used to assay for adducts.
Enrichment of cysteinyl adducts of human serum albumin.
TLDR
It is concluded that thiol-affinity resins can efficiently remove mercaptalbumin from HSA samples prior to characterization and quantitation of protein adducts of reactive systemic electrophiles.
Toward an "omic" physiopathology of reactive chemicals: thirty years of mass spectrometric study of the protein adducts with endogenous and xenobiotic compounds.
TLDR
It is foreseen that a holistic description of cellular functions will take advantage of new analytical methods based on time-integrated metabolomic measurements of a new biological compartment, the "adductome," aimed at better understanding integrated organism response to environmental and endogenous stressors.
Profiling Cys34 Adducts of Human Serum Albumin by Fixed-Step Selected Reaction Monitoring*
TLDR
A novel application of selected-reaction-monitoring (SRM) mass spectrometry, termed fixed-step SRM (FS-SRM), that allows detection of essentially all HSA-Cys34 modifications over a specified range of mass increases (added masses).
Involvement of hypoxia-inducible factor-1 α (HIF-1α) in inhibition of benzene on mouse hematopoietic system
TLDR
Data indicated that HIF-1α may be involved in benzene-induced inhibition of mouse hematopoiesis and that oxidative stress may play a role in the observed toxicity.
Adductomics Pipeline for Untargeted Analysis of Modifications to Cys34 of Human Serum Albumin.
TLDR
An untargeted analytical scheme and bioinformatics pipeline for detecting, quantitating, and annotating Cys34 adducts in tryptic digests of human serum/plasma is developed and adduct features were both positively and negatively associated with smoking.

Albumin adducts of benzene oxide and 1,4-benzoquinone as measures of human benzene metabolism.
TLDR
Albumin adducts can be used to investigate the dispositions of reactive metabolites of procarcinogens in humans, provided that exposures are adequately characterized in the month preceding blood collection.
Measurement of adducts of benzoquinone with hemoglobin and albumin.
TLDR
Large background levels of BQ adducts suggest that significant exposure to BQ precursors occurs from dietary and/or endogenous sources, and such exposures and their health consequences should be investigated.

TLDR
Interestingly, cigarette smoking increased Alb adducts of 1,4-BQ but not of BO, suggesting that benzene from cigarette smoke was not the primary contributor to the 1, 4-B Q adductS.
A new assay for albumin and hemoglobin adducts of 1,2- and 1,4-benzoquinones.
TLDR
A new method has been developed to detect mono-S-substituted cysteinyl adducts of 1,2- and 1,4-benzoquinone (BQ) in hemoglobin (Hb) and albumin (Alb) by gas-chromatography-mass spectrometry in the negative-ion chemical ionization mode.
Formation of hemoglobin and albumin adducts of benzene oxide in mouse, rat, and human blood.
TLDR
Doses of BO predicted from Alb adducts were similar in workers exposed to benzene and in rats following a single gavage dose of benzene, suggesting that conjugates of low-molecular-weight species were abundant in these isolates.
Genotoxicity of benzene and its metabolites.
TLDR
The findings suggest that DNA-adduct formation may not be a significant mechanism for BZ-induced neoplasia in rodents, and provides less support for proposed mechanisms involving DNA reactivity, mitotic spindle poisoning or oxidative DNA damage as genotoxic mechanisms.
Hematotoxicity in Workers Exposed to Low Levels of Benzene
TLDR
Two genetic variants in key metabolizing enzymes, myeloperoxidase and NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase, influenced susceptibility to benzene hematotoxicity and may be particularly evident among genetically susceptible subpopulations.

TLDR
Chronic benzene toxicity leading to MDS usually proceeds to acute myelocytic leukemia (AML), and Chromosome damage has been associated with benzene-induced leukemia since the observations of Pollini and Forni (1976).
Human exposure to naturally occurring hydroquinone.
TLDR
The data indicate that considerable human exposure to HQ can result from plant-derived dietary sources and, to a lesser extent, from cigarette smoke.
HUMAN EXPOSURE TO NATURALLY OCCURRING HYDROQUINONE
Hydroquinone (HQ) is a nonvolatile chemical used in the photographic, rubber, chemical, and cosmetic industries. HQ is also known to occur in nature as the beta-D-glucopyranoside conjugate (arbutin),
