Benz[a]anthracen-3-ol-13C6 is an isotope labelled analog of Benz[a]anthracen-3-ol. Benz[a]anthracen-3-ol is a derivative of the most potent carcinogenic hydrocarbon, 7,12-Dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (D464500), a highly potent carcinogen that is activated by microsomal enzymes to a diol epoxide metabolite that binds covalently to DNA in mammalian cells, leading ultimately to tumor induction. Benz[a]anthracen-3-ol is used in carcinogenesis studies relating to breast cancer.
