4-Methylquinoline (4-MeQ) showed an extraordinarily potent mutagenicity when compared to quinoline and isomeric methylquinolines. The major metabolite of 4-MeQ was 4-hydroxymethylquinoline, which was not mutagenic under the assay condition employed. Deuteration of the methyl group of 4-MeQ resulted in a...
