Modelling and Measuring Redox Cycling and Cytotoxicity of Quinones
The roles of alkylation and redox cycling in quinone toxicity were investigated. In general the more cytotoxic quinones produced the highest responses in an assay monitoring redox activity. No evidence of alkylation of high molecular weight protein thiols was detected. We conclude quinone toxicity is dominated by redox cycling.

- Drug Metabolism Letters publishes short papers on major advances in all areas of drug metabolism and disposition. The emphasis will be on publishing quality papers very rapidly. Letters will be processed rapidly by taking full advantage of the Internet technology for both the submission and review of manuscripts. The journal covers the following areas:
In vitro systems including CYP-450; enzyme induction and inhibition; drug-drug interactions and enzyme kinetics; pharmacokinetics, toxicokinetics, species scaling and extrapolations; P-glycoprotein and transport carriers; target organ toxicity and interindividual variability; drug metabolism and disposition studies; extrahepatic metabolism; phase I and phase II metabolism; recent developments for the identification of drug metabolites, reactive intermediate and glutathione conjugates.
