The synthetic antioxidant butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) stimulates superoxide formation in rat liver microsomes up to 10-fold. This stimulation is prevented by the monooxygenase inhibitor metyrapone and does not occur when NADH is consumed instead of NADPH indicating that metabolic activation...

We examined t-butylhydroquinone (t-BHQ) and t-butylquinone (t-BuQ), two of the major microsomal metabolites of the synthetic antioxidant butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), for their ability to react with the xenobiotic arylamines aniline and N-methylaniline. A number of substances were isolated by thin-layer...

The food additive butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) has been shown to induce gastrointestinal hyperplasia in rodents by an unknown mechanism. The relevance of this observation for human risk assessment is not clear. We therefore analysed the effect of BHA and its...

Quinone reductase (QR), in the presence of suitable substrate, results in the regeneration of NAD+ from NADH. To test the hypothesis that QR can play a role in ethanol metabolism and toxicity, we studied the effect of a quinone as...
