    Lowering TSNAs through nitrite reductase activity

    DAVENPORT S.E.; FORSYTH K.; TULLY L.; LISTER R.; LE LAY P.; MAUNDERS M.; SANCHEZ-TAMBURRINO J.P.
    Advanced Technologies Ltd., Cambridge, UK (holding of British American Tobacco Ltd.)
    Tobacco specific nitrosamines (TSNAs) are compounds in tobacco that have been shown to be carcinogenic. TSNAs are formed by the nitrosation of tobacco alkaloids with the main nitrosating agent believed to be nitrite. High levels of nitrate accumulation ...

    TSNA accumulation in two burley tobacco cultivars

    JACK A.M.(1); FISHER C.R.(1); SCHOERGENDORFER A.(1); FANNIN F.F.(1); DANEHOWER D.(2); BUSH L.P.(1)
    (1) University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY, USA; (2) North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC, USA
    Differences in TSNA accumulation between burley genotypes can often be attributed to differences in nicotine conversion and/or differences in amount of total alkaloids. However, several researchers have observed differences in TSNAs between certain ...

    Reduction of nornicotine in experimental burley tobaccos and impact on N-nitrosonornicotine in lamina and smoke

    HAYES A.(1); LUSSO M.(1); HAJALIGOL M.(1); LEWIS R.(2)
    (1) Altria Client Services Inc, Richmond, VA, USA; (2) North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC, USA
    The levels and stability of nornicotine in burley tobaccos have been of considerable interest because of nornicotine's role as a primary precursor in the accumulation of N-nitrosonornicotine (NNN) during and after curing. Efforts to screen foundation ...
