General description

6-Nitrobenzo[a]pyrene belongs to the class of nitrated-polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, found to be persistent in the environment. It is produced from direct sources such as diesel, gasoline exhaust and by the gas-phase reactions of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) with oxides of nitrogen.

Several nitroarenes derived from benzo[a]pyrene and perylene and the parent hydrocarbons have been assayed for mutagenicity in the Salmonella microsome test and for affinity for the 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD)-receptor protein in rat liver cytosol. 1- and 3-nitrobenzo[a]pyrene are mutagenic in the...

Nitropolycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (nitroarenes), including 6-nitrobenzo[a]pyrene (6-NBap), occur in our environment and are mutagenic in bacterial mutagenesis assays. The mutagenicity of 6-NBaP is enhanced when rat liver S9 is added. To investigate the cause of this increased activity, the metabolism...
