Metabolism and binding studies with 2-Naphthylamine and many other arylamines have shown cytochrome P-450 catalysed N-hydroxylation to be a critical step in the activation of these compounds. Followed by glucuronidation and excretion of the glucuronides via the kidney, this reaction can account for the ability of 2-Naphthylamine to initiate tumours of the bladder .
2-Hydroxyamino-naphthalene is formed in the reaction of N-oxidation catalyzed by unspecific monooxygenase . This compound, can spontaneous bind to DNA to form mutagenic DNA adducts. 2-Naphthylamine and 2-Hydroxyamino-naphthalene conjugate with UDP-D-glucuronic acid and form respectively 2-Naphthylamine-N-beta-D-glucuronoside and 2-Hydroxyamino-naphthalene-N-beta-D-glucuronoside. Both reactions are catalyzed by the family of glucuronosyltransferase enzymes that includes: UDP Glucuronosyltransferase 1 family, polypeptide A4 ( UGT1A4 ), UDP Glucuronosyltransferase 1 family, polypeptide A1 ( UGT1A1 ), UDP Glucuronosyltransferase 1 family, polypeptide A3 ( UGT1A3 ); UDP Glucuronosyltransferase 1 family, polypeptide A9 ( UGT1A9 ); (UDP Glucuronosyltransferase 1 family, polypeptide A8 ( UGT1A8 ), and UDP Glucuronosyltransferase 1 family, polypeptide A6 ( UGT1A6 ) , , , . 2-Hydroxyamino-naphthalene can spontaneously isomerize further into the 2-Amino-1-naphthol. The latter conjugates with UDP-D-glucuronic acid in the reaction catalyzed by the same glucuronosyltransferase enzymes.
In addition, both 2-Hydroxyamino-naphthalene and 2-Amino-1-Naphthol form sulphate conjugates N-Hydroxy-2-naphthyl-sulfamic acid and 2-Amino-1-naphthylsulfate, respectively. Both reactions are catalyzed by the family of sulfotransferase enzymes: Sulfotransferase family, cytosolic, 1A, phenol-preferring, members 1, 2, 3 and 4 ( SULT1A1, SULT1A2, SULT1A3 and SULT1A4 ) correspondingly , , , . Further N-Hydroxy-2-naphthyl-sulfamic acid isomerizes into 2-Amino-1-naphthylsulfate.
2-Hydroxyamino-naphthalene is formed by reduction of 2-Nitrosonaphthalene in the reaction of catalyzed by unknown oxidoreductase . 2-Nitrosonaphthalene is formed by reduction of 2-Nitronaphthalene also catalyzed by unknown oxidoreductase .
