Mutat Res. 2005 Aug 1;585(1-2):21-32.1,3-Butadiene and isoprene (2-methyl-1,3-butadiene) are chemically related substances that are carcinogenic to rodents. The overall aim of this work is to elucidate the role of the genotoxic action of diepoxide metabolites in the carcinogenesis of the dialkenes. In vivo doses of the diepoxide metabolites were measured through reaction products with hemoglobin (Hb adducts) in studies of induced micronuclei (MN) in rodents. Read More
