Abstract

Two main pathways are involved in the carcinogenic activation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH): one-electron oxidation and monooxygenation. One-electron oxidation produces PAH radical cations, which can react with cellular nucleophiles. Carcinogenicity studies of PAH in rat mammary gland indicate that only PAH with ionization potential low enough for activation by one-electron oxidation induce tumors in this target organ. These results and others indicate that one-electron oxidation of PAH is involved in their tumor initiation process.
