Disease relevance of carbon monoxide

  • Flue gas samples from eight different sources (industrial plants and crematories) have been analyzed for PCDD/Fs and PCBs and total Toxicity EQuivalents (TEQ) values have been calculated using the latest WHO toxicity equivalent factors from 1998 [1].

High impact information on carbon monoxide


Biological context of carbon monoxide


Anatomical context of carbon monoxide

  • Exhaust gas exposure induced aggregation and electron translucence of plastoglobuli, swelling of thylakoids, increase of cytoplasmic lipids and slight increase of vesiculation of cytoplasm in mesophyll cells of current and previous year needles [12].

Associations of carbon monoxide with other chemical compounds

  • The kinetic data, the apparent Ki's for the four inhibitors and Km's for the substrate estradiol in the assays, along with the inhibition results with carbon monooxide suggest that different forms of cytochrome P-450 may be involved in the two hydroxylations [13].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of carbon monoxide

  • Exhaust gas samples collected at the outlet of the incinerator were analyzed for dioxins (PCDDs, PCDFs, and coplanar PCBs) by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry [14].
