Biochem/physiol Actions

N-Nitrosodiethylamine (NDMA) is carcinogenic in all animal species tested. The main target organs are the nasal cavity, trachea, lung, esophagus and liver. NDMA is acted upon by the cytochrome P450 system resulting in the formation of carcinogenic methyldiazonium ion. However microbes like Pseudomonas metabolize NDMA into N-nitromethylamine (NTMA) and formaldehyde.
