Description

Urethane (Ethyl carbamate), the ethyl ester of carbamic acid, is a byproduct of fermentation found in various food products. Urethane has the ability to suppress bacterial, protozoal, sea urchin egg, and plant tissue growth in vitro[1].

In Vitro

Urethane is a good clastogen in mammalian somatic cells in vivo, but it shows variable results with cells in vitro. Urethane efficiently induces sister chromatid exchanges in a variety of cells[2].

MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.

In Vivo

Urethane has been used for many years to produce hypnosis and narcosis in mammals, fish, and amphibians. At anaesthetic dosages (1-1.2 g/kg body weight for rats) Urethane has a wide margin of safety and causes minimal changes in blood pressure, aortic blood flow, and blood-gas values[1].
At a dosage of 1g/kg IP (administered intraperitoneally), Urethane will arrest cell division in the crypt of liberkuhn cells in mice[1].
