    • Male Rats: F344/N
    • Dose: [14C]TCAOB (3.4 and 34 mg/kg, 50 uCi/kg) in corn oil was administered (5 ml/kg). [14C]TCAOB (3.4 mg/kg) was administered intravenously (2 ml/kg). TCAOB was adminstered intravenously into the jugular vein(3.4 mg/kg, 2 ml/kg) or orally (34 mg/kg, 5 ml/kg); dosing vehicle was the solution of emulphor:ethanol:water [1:1:1 (v/v/v)]..

    • Male Rats: F344/N
    • Dose: [14C]TCAB (3.2 or 32 mg/kg; 5 ml/kg) in corn oil was administered by gavage. All received 40-50 uCi/kg. [14C]TCAB (3.2 mg/kg; 2 ml/kg) was dissolved in a mixture of emulphor:ehthanol:water (3:3:4) by heating in an 80 degree C water bath. The solution was administered as abolus dose in the jugular vein. Unlabeled TCAB (3.2 mg/kg; 2 ml/kg) was administered intravenously to JVC rat..
