Abstract

After injection of N-nitrosobis(2-oxopropyl)amine (BOP) (10 mg/kg) to male Syrian golden hamsters there were higher concentrations of BOP and many of its metabolites in the hamster pancreas compared with the liver and salivary gland. Also, a potential methylating metabolite of BOP, N-nitrosomethyl(2-oxopropyl)amine, was found in both tissues.
