Bioanalysis of polychlorinated dibenzofuran and dibenzo-p-dioxin mixtures in fly ash Academic Article uri icon


  • The biologic activities of the polychlorinated dibenzofuran and dibenzo-p-dioxin fractions from fly ash extracts are assessed by measuring their potencies as inducers of ethoxyresorufin 0-deethylase and aryl hydrocarbon hydroxylase in rat hepatoma H-4-II E cells and their binding affinities to the cytosolic receptor protein. The utility of these bioassays for the analysis of the toxic halogenated aryl hydrocarbons is discussed. © 1983.
