General description

2-Bromo-4,6-dinitroaniline is an important metabolite of the azo dye Disperse Blue 79. It can be easily recognized by all rat monoclonal antibodies.


2-Bromo-4,6-dinitroaniline was used as a model chemical in the inter-laboratory evaluation of the bioluminescent Salmonella reverse mutation assay for detecting mutagenicity.

Characterization of toxicological profiles by use of traditional targeted strategies might underestimate the risk of environmental mixtures. Unbiased identification of prioritized compounds provides a promising strategy for meeting regulatory needs. In this study, untargeted screening of brominated compounds in house...

The development and characterization of one rat monoclonal antibody (mAb) for 2,4-dinitroaniline and of two rat mAbs for 2,6-dinitroaniline are described. With the immunization of rats with 2,4,6-trinitrophenyl-glycylglycine-keyhole limpet hemocyanine (KLH) conjugate one mAb (PK 5H6) has been developed and...
