    In the present study we used an organic extract of the urban dust standard reference material, SRM1649a, as a model mixture to study a range of toxic effects related to DNA damage and AhR activation. We found that this extract, as well as its neutral and polar fractions, were potent inducers of a range of AhR-mediated responses. Importantly, these toxic events occurred at doses one order of magnitude lower than induction of DNA damage. Our data suggested that more attention should be paid to the AhR-dependent nongenotoxic events elicited by urban air particulate matter constituents, especially polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and their derivatives.
