General description

3-Nitrofluoranthene, belonging to the class of nitrated-polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, is persistent in the environment. It is produced from direct sources such as diesel, gasoline exhaust and gas-phase reactions of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) with oxides of nitrogen.

The environmental pollutant 3-nitrofluoranthene is metabolized in vitro and in vivo to several products including the phenolic metabolites 3-nitrofluoranthen-6-ol (3NF-6-ol), 3-nitrofluoranthen-8-ol (3NF-8-ol), and 3-nitrofluoranthen-9-ol (3NF-9-ol). Similarly, 1-nitropyrene is metabolized to the phenolic metabolites 1-nitropyren-3-ol (1NP-3-ol), 1-nitropyren-6-ol (1NP-6-ol), and 1-nitropyren-8-ol (1NP-8-ol)....

The genotoxic environmental pollutant 3-nitrofluoranthene (3-NFA) was reduced chemically and allowed to react with calf thymus DNA, yielding one major adduct which was determined to be N-(deoxyguanosin-8-yl)-3-amino-fluoranthene based on Fast Atom Bombardment Mass Spectrometry (FAB-MS), proton nuclear magnetic resonance, ultraviolet-visible...

The cytosolic molybdoflavoprotein xanthine oxidase has been shown to catalyze the reduction of exocyclic nitro groups to the corresponding nitroso, hydroxylamino and amino derivatives for a wide variety of xenobiotics including the nitrated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons 1-nitropyrene and 3-nitrofluoranthene. Using...

The 1H NMR spectra of the nitrofluoranthene isomers are presented to allow gas chromatographic analysis of environmental samples suspected of containing nitrofluoranthenes. The mutagenic isomers 1-, 2-, 3-, 7-, and 8-nitrofluoranthene and 1,2- and 1,3-dinitrofluoranthene and a nonmutagenic analogue, 1-phenyl-4-nitronaphthalene...

The male rabbit liver microsomal cytochrome P450 metabolism of 1-nitropyrene and 3-nitrofluoranthene was investigated. In this study, we used inhibitory antibodies specific for rabbit P450 2C3 and determined that, in untreated male rabbit liver microsomes, the antibody inhibited approximately 75%...
