  • Metabolic dephenylation of the rubber antioxidant N-phenyl-2Naphthylamine to carcinogenic 2Naphthylamine in rats
    Archives of Toxicology, 2013
    Co-Authors: Tobias Weiss, Hermann M Bolt, Gerhard Schlüter, Stephan Koslitz, Dirk Taeger, Peter Welge, Thomas Bruning


    N -Phenyl-2Naphthylamine (P2NA) was widely used as oxidation inhibitor, particularly in rubber manufacturing. Technical-grade P2NA was contaminated with carcinogenic 2Naphthylamine (2NA), and bladder cancer risk in exposed workers was attributed to this impurity. Investigations in humans and mammalian species revealed that small amounts of 2NA are excreted into urine after exposure to P2NA. However, since 2NA per se is not carcinogenic and main downstream metabolites of 2NA have not been found in urine so far, it remained uncertain if 2NA derived from P2NA dephenylation is further activated to carcinogenic downstream metabolites. An experimental animal study was therefore designed to indicate if, and if yes to which extent, 2NA from P2NA dephenylation is accessible to the metabolic pathway that is held responsible for the carcinogenicity of 2NA. Groups of 5 male and female CD rats were dosed with P2NA (2–550 mg/kg b.w.) and 2NA (0.075–75 mg/kg b.w.); 2NA-haemoglobin adducts and urinary 2NA excretion were determined applying GC–MS/MS. 2NA haemoglobin adducts originated dose-dependently after 2NA and P2NA dosing. To induce identical adduct concentrations, an approximately 100–200-fold higher dose of P2NA was necessary compared to 2NA. Since haemoglobin adducts are formed by the same pathway ( N -hydroxylation) as the ultimate carcinogens from 2NA, the comparison of adduct concentrations after 2NA and P2NA dosage permits a quantitative estimate of the carcinogenicity of P2NA. The results show that 2NA derived from dephenylation of P2NA enters the carcinogenic downstream pathway of 2NA in rats. Hence, the bladder cancer risk after human exposures to P2NA must be re-evaluated.

  • dephenylation of the rubber chemical n phenyl 2 Naphthylamine to carcinogenic 2 Naphthylamine a classical problem revisited
    Critical Reviews in Toxicology, 2007
    Co-Authors: Tobias Weiss, Thomas Bruning, Hermann M Bolt


    N-Phenyl-2Naphthylamine (PBNA) represents an example of a suspected carcinogen that is found negative in mutagenicity and clastogenicity testing as well as in long-term animal carcinogenicity bioassays in several species, but for which a carcinogenic risk cannot be excluded because of its metabolic conversion to the known human carcinogen 2Naphthylamine. Also, epidemiologic studies failed to indicate an elevated bladder cancer risk in humans occupationally exposed to PBNA. The amounts of 2Naphthylamine found in the urine of different species including humans after exposure to PBNA indicate unequivocally that PBNA is dephenylated to some extent. These are not explained by the 2Naphthylamine impurities in technical-grade PBNA. To explain the metabolic dephenylation process, it has been suggested that PBNA is metabolized by cytochrome P-450 (CYP) enzymes to the phenolic derivative 4′-hydroxy-N-phenyl-2Naphthylamine, followed by its further oxidation to the quinone imine, which subsequently hydrolyses to…

  • studies on the toxic interaction mechanism between 2 Naphthylamine and herring sperm dna
    Journal of Biochemical and Molecular Toxicology, 2013
    Co-Authors: Ling Song


    The toxic interaction between 2Naphthylamine (2-NA) and herring sperm deoxyribonucleic acid (hs-DNA) has been thoroughly investigated by UV absorption, fluorescence, and circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopic methods. UV absorption result indicates that 2-NA may intercalate into the stack base pairs of DNA during the toxic interaction of 2-NA with DNA. A fluorescence quenching study shows that DNA quenches the intrinsic fluorescence of 2-NA via a static pathway. The studies on effects of ionic strength and anionic quenching rule out electrostatic and groove bindings as the dominant binding modes. Further studies on denatured DNA fluorescence quenching and thermal melting studies confirm that the dominant binding mode of 2-NA-DNA is intercalative binding. A CD spectral study shows that the binding interaction of 2-NA with DNA leads to the disorganization of the neat double-helical structure of hs-DNA. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

  • spectroscopic investigation of the interaction of the toxicant 2 Naphthylamine with bovine serum albumin
    Journal of Biochemical and Molecular Toxicology, 2011
    Co-Authors: Mingmao Chen, Guangling Bian, Ling Song


    The mechanism of interaction between bovine serum albumin (BSA) and 2Naphthylamine (2-NA) in aqueous solution was investigated by fluorescence spectroscopy, circular dichroism (CD) spectra, and UV–vis spectroscopy. It was proved from fluorescence spectra that the fluorescence quenching of BSA by 2-NA was a result of the formation of complex between 2-NA and BSA, and the binding constants (Ka) as well as the numbers of binding sites for 2-NA in BSA were determined according to the modified Stern–Volmer equation. The results of synchronous fluorescence and CD spectra demonstrated 2-NA could decrease the amount of α-helix of BSA, leading to the loosening of protein skeleton. UV–vis spectroscopy and resonance light scattering spectra (RLS) results also suggested the conformation of BSA were changed and the BSA aggregation occured, which could induce toxic effects on the organism. © 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
