- α-amanitin, a deadly cellular toxin found in Amanita phalloides mushroom (death cap)
- Carbon tetrachloride
- Pyrrolizidine alkaloids, found in many plants in the Boraginaceae, Compositae, and Leguminosae families.
- allyl alcohol, amiodarone, Aroclor 1254, arsenic, carbamazepine, carbon tetrachloride, diethylnitrosamine, dimethylformamide, diquat, etoposide, indomethacin, methapyrilene, methotrexate, monocrotaline, and 3-methylcholanthrene.
