Metabolite Identification
Common Namem-Dichlorobenzene
Descriptionm-Dichlorobenzene belongs to the class of organic compounds known as dichlorobenzenes. Dichlorobenzenes are compounds containing a benzene with exactly two chlorine atoms attached to it. m-Dichlorobenzene is possibly neutral. The liver damage caused in rats by m-Dichlorobenzene is accompanied by induction of xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes of the phenobarbital type. m-Dichlorobenzene is a potentially toxic compound. No information is available on the reproductive, developmental, or carcinogenic effects of 1,4-dichlorobenzene in humans. This leads to an increased release of T4 and T3 in the thyroid follicles. Acute (short-term) exposure to 1,4-dichlorobenzene, via inhalation in humans, results in irritation of the skin, throat, and eyes. In rats, a disturbance in thyroid homoeostasis can develop by hepatic enzyme induction: m-Dichlorobenzene induces glucuronosyl transferases. A National Toxicology Program (NTP) study reported that 1,4-dichlorobenzene caused kidney tumors in male rats and liver tumors in both sexes of mice by gavage (experimentally placing the chemical in their stomachs). The conjugation of the thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) is increased by the induction of glucuronosyl transferases. Chronic (long-term) 1,4-dichlorobenzene inhalation exposure in humans results in effects on the liver, skin, and central nervous system (CNS).
