Airborne particulates were collected at a background site (Wajima Air Monitoring Station; WAMS) on the Noto Peninsula, Japan from January 2006 to December 2007. 1-, 2-nitropyrenes (1-, 2-NPs) and 2-nitrofluoranthene (2-NFR), in the particulates were determined with a sensitive HPLC...

It is reported that diesel exhaust particles contain more 1-nitropyrene (1-NP) than benzo[a]pyrene (B[a]P), both of which are potent carcinogenic compounds. In this study, we show that 1-NP is more potent in reducing cell viability than B[a]P, pyrene, nitrobenzene, and...

1-Nitropyrene (1NPy) is the most abundant nitropolycyclic aromatic contaminant encountered in diesel exhausts. Understanding its photochemistry is important because of its carcinogenic and mutagenic properties, and potential phototransformations into biologically active products. We have studied the photophysics and photochemistry of...

Toxicology letters, 184(2), 126-133 (2008-12-02)
Nitropyrene (1-NP) is classified as Group 2B carcinogen and is one of the main components of diesel exhaust particles (DEP), which are generated from incomplete combustion of automobile engines to cause human cancer or inflammatory diseases. Although many reports on...

Journal of radiation research, 49(6), 615-622 (2008-09-09)
Nitropyrene, a mutagenic and carcinogenic component of diesel exhaust, has been shown to be a potent bacterial and mammalian mutagen. There is, however, some controversy regarding the genotoxic effects of 1-nitropyrene towards yeast. To obtain insights into the mechanisms of...
Cancer research has revealed that the classical model of carcinogenesis, a three step process consisting of initiation, promotion, and progression, is not complete.
