n.
A yellow crystalline aromatic compound, C6H3N3O6, prepared from trinitrotoluene and used as an explosive.

trinitrobenzene

(traɪˌnaɪtrəʊˈbɛnziːn; -bɛnˈziːn)
n
(Elements & Compounds) any of three explosive crystalline isomeric compounds with the formula C6H3(NO2)3. They are less sensitive to impact than TNT but more powerful in their explosive force

So far, the assay has been mostly evaluated with strong positive control sensitizers (2,4-dinitrochlorobenzene, trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid), showing a response of no more than 4% of T cells.

The protective effect of ABA has been demonstrated against trinitrobenzene sulphonic acid- (TNBS-) induced colitis in Swiss male mice [155].
[68] studied the transformation of trinitrobenzene by a Pseudomonas consortium that utilized trinitrobenzene as the sole source of nitrogen, but not sole source of carbon.
METHODS: Experimental colitis was induced with 1 mL trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS) in 40% ethanol by intracolonic administration with 8-cm-long cannula under ether anesthesia to rats in colitis group and colitis + black cumin oil group.
(73) IL-13 has also been shown to be important in a surprising variety of extrapulmonary fibrosis models, including non-immune-based systems such as steatohepatitis and trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid-induced colitis.
The aims of this study were to investigate, if the inflammation markers formed in trinitrobenzene sulphonic acid (TNBS)-induced colitis affect the gastric tissue and to determine the possible protective effects of orally administered NS seed oil on the gastric tissue.
Zona-free blastocysts were placed at 4[degrees]C for 30 min in 15 mM trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS, Sigma) and then exposed to goat anti-dinitrophenol-BSA (ICN Biomedicals Inc., Irvine, CA) for 20 min at 39[degrees]C.
The cocatalyst has a double bond, electron-depleted by an electroattractive group including o-chloranyl (3,4,5,6-tetrachloro-1,2-benzoquinone), p-chloranyl (2,3,5,6-tetrachloro-1,4-benzoquinone), nitrobenzene, trinitrobenzene, or tetracyanoethylene.
To test whether the relative amounts of essential fatty acids in the diet affects colitis-related damage, Natalia Nieto and her colleagues at the University of Granada in Spain induced ulcerative colitis in a group of rats by administering a substance known as trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid through a tube into the animals' colons.
