Nair, Nandini and Kurup, Ramakrishna CK (1987) Increase in hepatic ubiquinone on administration of diethylhexyl phthalate to the rat. In: Journal of Biosciences, 11 (1-4). 391 -7.Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)
The content of ubiquinone of liver increases (2.5-fold) on dietary administration of the widely-used industrial plasticizer di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (I) to the rat. The increase is localized almost entirely in mitochondria in which the concn. of the quinone per mg protein is 1.7 times the control. Incorporation of the radioactive precursor (acetate) reveals that the biosynthesis of ubiquinone is increased in the livers of plasticizer-administered animals. The rate of degrdn. is not altered.
