N-phenyllinoleamide (NPLA), the anilide of linoleic acid, has been associated with the epidemiology of Toxic Oil Syndrome, but no data are available on its metabolism. On account of the similarity in chemical structure between the linoleic acid and NPLA, the aim of this study has been to investigate the oxidative metabolism of this xenobiotic by the human nasal polyp, a tissue with elevated 15-lipoxygenase activity. For this purpose, tissue homogenates have been incubated for 2 h with NPLA (0.1 mM) spiked with either N-(ring G-3H)PLA (0.2 microCi/ml) or N-P(1-14C)LA (0.05 microCi/ml). Gas chromatographic/mass spectrometric analysis of the high performance liquid radiochromatographic fractions shows that the 9,12,13-trihydroxy, 12,13-epoxy-11-hydroxy and 13-hydroxy NPLA derivatives are the major metabolites. These results revealed that NPLA metabolites are chemical structures related to the linoleic acid derivatives, some of which may show biological activity.
