Allylamine Cardiotoxicity: Metabolism and Mechanism
Allylamine (CH2=CH-CH2NH2) is an unsaturated aliphatic amine which is used in the production of drugs, antiseptics, and plastics. Although many investigators have studied the potent and relatively specific cardiovascular toxicity of allylamine, the mechanism of its toxic action remains obscure.
