Gene context of Butanone

  • OBJECTIVES: To test the hypothesis that blockage of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) or methylethylketone (MEK)1/2 kinase activities impairs the growth of kidney cancer cells and magnifies the growth inhibitory effect of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitor rapamycin [30].
  • Cyclotron-produced NCA (186)Re was separated radiochemically from enriched (186)W (96.9%) targets using high-purity methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) [31].
  • Methylethylketoxime, also known as MEKO or 2-butanone oxime (CAS No. 96-29-7), is a clear, colorless to light yellow liquid at room temperature [32].
  • A 16-h pretreatment with either 2-butanone (2.1 ml/kg, p.o.) or 2,3-butanediol (2.12 ml/kg, p.o.) markedly enhanced the hepatotoxic response to CCl4 (0.1 ml/kg, i.p.), as measured by serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase activity and hepatic triglyceride content [33].
  • Concentrations of acetone and 2-butanone measured using C18 cartridges were lower than those measured using silica gel cartridges [34].
