Disease relevance of NSC2851

  • Cell extracts of Sphingomonas herbicidovorans MH grown on (R)-mecoprop contained an enzyme activity that selectively converted (R)-mecoprop to 4-chloro-2-methylphenol, whereas extracts of cells grown on (S)-mecoprop contained an enzyme activity selective for the S enantiomer [1].
  • Toxicity of 4-chloro-O-cresol to rat: I. Light microscopy and chemical observations [2].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of NSC2851

  • The Gram-negative strain S1, isolated from activated sludge, metabolized 4-chloro-2-methylphenol by an inducible pathway via a modified ortho-cleavage route as indicated by a transiently secreted intermediate, identified as 2-methyl-4-carboxymethylenebut-2-en-4-olide by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry [10].
