Experiments are performed to compare the mutagenic properties of the three phosphamide esters of nitrogen mustard, cyclophosphamide (CP), ifosfamide (IF), and trofosfamide (TF), in different bacterial systems. The systems include forward mutations leading to resistance against 5-methyltryptophan (MTR) and from galR 18 8 to gal + in Escherichia coli 343/113,(More)
Sera obtained from wild ungulates, carnivores, and rodents in Colorado were tested for neutralizing (N) antibody against vesicular stomatitis, New Jersey serotype (VSNJ), virus to determine their involvement in the 1982 Colorado VSNJ epizootic in domestic animals. Viremic and N antibody responses of two local rodent species to a 1982 Colorado isolate of(More)
During T cell-dependent antibody responses, the V region genes of responding B lymphocytes are physiologically mutated at a high rate. An intense selection process expands subclones of B cells producing mutant antibodies that bind Ag optimally. This implies that most mutant B cells and their antibody products are unselected and not often observed by(More)
Derivatives of E. coli K-12 strain 343/113 differing in DNA repair capacity, in permeability to large molecules, and in some metabolizing activities (nitroreductase, glutathione), were constructed for the quantitative determination of the induction of various genetic effects, such as forward and back mutations, lysogenic induction of prophage lambda, and(More)
