ATR is catabolized by plants, microbes, and animals to yield four major metabolites (Figure 1): hydroxyatrazine (HA; 6-hydroxy-N-ethyl-N'-isopropyl-[1,3,5]triazine-2,4-diamine), diaminochlorotriazine (DACT; 6-chloro[1,3,5]triazine-2,4-diamine), deisopropylatrazine (DIA; 6-chloro-N-ethyl-[1,3,5]triazine-2,4-diamine), and deethylatrazine (DEA; 6-chloro-N-isopropyl-[1,3,5]triazine-2,4-diamine).
Evidence that atrazine and diaminochlorotriazine inhibit the estrogen/progesterone induced surge of luteinizing hormone in female Sprague-Dawley rats without changing estrogen receptor action.
