Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Safrole is a naturally-occurring genotoxic compound found in Sassafras root and Areca (betel) quid. It is a hepatocarcinogen, and safrole-DNA adducts have also been seen in oral cancers of Areca users. Metabolites of safrole form adducts with DNA and induce chromasomal aberrations and sister chromatid exchanges.
