Adult male Wistar rats administered i.p. with 2-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile (CS) excreted one mercapturic acid in urine. The amount of mercapturic acid determined gaschromatographically was about 4% of the dose (0.07 mmol/kg, n = 12). The structure of the mercapturic acid methylester was identified by t.l.c. and confirmed by synthesis and mass-spectrography. The acid appeared to be 2-chlorobenzylmercapturic acid [N-acetyl-S-(2-chlorobenzyl)-L-cysteine]. CS and some of its metabolites were also tested in the Ames Salmonella/microsome assay. Both mutagenic and toxic effects were measured with strain TA 100 as the indicator organism. No mutagenic effects were found with any of the tested substances. At dosages of CS, higher than 1,000 micrograms/plate a bacteriotoxicity was revealed.
