41 compounds or mixtures of diverse structure and application have been tested for genotoxic activity. The materials were tested in bacterial mutation assays, in Saccharomyces cerevisiae JD1 for mitotic gene conversion and in a cultured rat-liver cell line for structural chromosome damage. 11 compounds were bacterial mutagens, 4 induced mitotic gene(More)
An in vitro chromosome assay has been developed which utilises an epithelial-like cell line derived from rat liver. The cell line, designed RL1, retains sufficient metabolic enzyme activity to detect chromosome damage induced by a variety of chemical mutagens and carcinogens without the incorporation of an extrinsic metabolising system. The cells are grown(More)
A glucose isomerase enzyme, obtained from Streptomyces murinus, was produced by a fermentation process and subjected to a series of tests to investigate its safety in use and manufacture. It was not mutagenic (Ames test, using liquid culture) nor did it provoke chromosomal damage (rat bone marrow cytogenetics test). It did not contain (nor did the organism(More)
In order to investigate the relationship between mutation and carcinogenesis in vivo, a method has been developed in which somatic mutation can be studied in specific organs of Chinese hamsters after acute dosing with chemical carcinogens. In preliminary experiments an increase in mutation was detected in cultures derived from lung tissue of hamsters after(More)
A series of 6 studies has been performed to evaluate the potential genotoxic effect of 7-chloro-3-[1-(2,4-dichlorophenyl)-2-(1H- imidazol-1-yl)ethoxy-methyl]benzo[b]thiophene (sertaconazole, FI 7045, CAS 99592-32-2). From these studies, the reverse mutation assay on Salmonella typhimurium, sex-linked recessive lethal mutations on Drosophila and genetic(More)
A battery of in vitro and in vivo tests were conducted on HCFC-141b as a vapour. Bacterial gene mutation assays with Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium were negative in all tester strains. In vitro chromosomal aberration assays were positive on CHO cells but negative on human lymphocytes. Moreover, HCFC-141b was negative in vivo in a mouse(More)
