Disease relevance of TERT-BUTYLPHENOL


High impact information on TERT-BUTYLPHENOL

  • Sera obtained from fetal bovine and bullfrog tadpoles weakened the T(3) agonist and antagonist activities of 3,3',5-tribromobisphenol A, but not the T(3) antagonist activity of o-t-butylphenol, for which xTTR has no significant affinity [2].
  • T3 antagonist activities of all these chemicals except for o-t-butylphenol were verified by T3-dependent reporter gene assay [3].
  • The ratios of apparent permeability coefficient of B-to-A against A-to-B, P(app) ratios, for BPA, tOP and tBP were markedly decreased in the presence of 100 microM verapamil [4].
  • Both superoxide anion radical (O(2)(-)) scavenging activity and reactive oxygen species (ROS) production activity declined in the order of TBP > DBP > bisDBP [5].

Anatomical context of TERT-BUTYLPHENOL

  • The cytotoxic activity against human oral tumor cell lines (HSC-2, HSG) and human gingival fibroblast cells (HGF) declined in the order of DBP >> bisDBP = TBP = TBP-OOH (2,4,6-tri-t-butyl-4-hydroperoxy-2,5-cyclohexadiene-1-one) [5].
