Toluene biotransformation takes place in the liver by the cytochrome P450 2El (CYP2E1) isoform, producing hippuric acid, which is excreted in urine (Nakajima and Wang 1994).
Low peptide excretion was also observed for the size range of 250-750 Da, and high recovery of amino acids was achieved only for the fraction containing molecules under 250 Da, which would include free amino acids and amino acid derivatives such as hippuric acid and 5-oxoproline.
