High impact information on NSC30350

  • The effects of a number of 4-nitroquinoline 1-oxide and 4-nitropyridine 1-oxide derivatives, with varying carcinogenic potencies, on the scission of proteins linking DNA were studied in cultured mouse fibroblasts, strain L-P-3 [1].
  • In the presence of NADH, lipoamide dehydrogenase reduces the nitro group of 4-nitropyridine and 4-nitropyridine N-oxide [2].
  • We have unraveled the effects of an amino substituent in the ortho position on the excited-state dynamics of 4-nitropyridine N-oxide by studying the picosecond fluorescence kinetics and femtosecond transient absorption of a newly synthesized compound, 2-butylamino-6-methyl-4-nitropyridine N-oxide, and by quantum chemical calculations [3].
  • In contrast, all the chemicals tested inhibited rat liver GST activity towards 4-nitropyridine N-oxide, indicating isozyme specificity [4].
