The mutagenicity of various quinones, a class of compounds widely distributed in nature, is demonstrated in the Salmonella TA104 tester strain. The metabolic pathways by which four quinones, menadione, benzo[a]pyrene 3,6-quinone, 9,10-phenanthrenequinone, and danthron, caused mutagenicity in this test system...

With the use of the model complexes [(PQ)FeCl(CH(3)O)](+), [(phen)FeCl(CH(3)O)](+), and [(PQ)(phen)FeCl(CH(3)O)](+), where PQ is 9,10-phenanthraquinone and phen is 1,10-phenanthroline, the reactivity of phenanthraquinone in complexes with iron(III) is investigated. It is shown that 9,10-phenanthraquinone takes part in redox processes occurring...

Aldo-keto reductase (AKR) 1C3 (type 2 3alpha-HSD, type 5 17beta-HSD, and prostaglandin F synthase) regulates ligand access to steroid hormone and prostaglandin receptors and may stimulate proliferation of prostate and breast cancer cells. NSAIDs are known inhibitors of AKR1C enzymes....

9,10-Phenanthrenequinone (PQ) is harmful environmental pollutant that is detected in airborne particulates. The measurement of PQ in the air should be necessary to evaluate the potential adverse effects of PQ on human health. We have recently developed a determination method...
