Genotoxicity of industrial wastes and effluents.
In excess of several million pounds of genotoxic and/or carcinogenic industrial wastes are released into the U.S. environment each year. Chemical characterization of these waste materials can rarelyExpand
Mutagenic activity of some coffee flavor ingredients.
The mutagenicity of 4 coffee flavor ingredients (chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, pyrazine, and trigonelline) was evaluated in the Salmonella plate incorporation assay and mouse lymphoma L5178Y TK +/-Expand
Genotoxicity of bioremediated soils from the Reilly Tar site, St. Louis Park, Minnesota.
An in vitro approach was used to measure the genotoxicity of creosote-contaminated soil before and after four bioremediation processes. The soil was taken from the Reilly Tar site, a closed SuperfundExpand
Development of a standard reference material for diesel mutagenicity in the Salmonella plate incorporation assay.
The present study documents the mutagenicity of a new National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standard reference material (SRM) in the Salmonella plate incorporation assay. This studyExpand
Mutagenic activity of 27 dyes and related chemicals in the salmonella/microsome and mouse lymphoma TK+/- assays.
A total of 27 dyes and related chemicals were tested for mutagenicity in both the Salmonella typhimurium plate-incorporation and FMN-modified assays as well as the mouse lymphoma TK+/- assay. Half ofExpand
Assessing the use of known mutagens to calibrate the Salmonella typhimurium mutagenicity assay: II. With exogenous activation.
In order to determine the usefulness of selected chemicals as potential reference materials for calibrating the Salmonella assay, two laboratories tested a series of Salmonella mutagens that requireExpand
Ambient air pollutants: collection, chemical characterization and mutagenicity testing.
Abstract This review discusses sources and types of air pollution; collection, fractionation and chemical analysis of air samples; and in vitro bioassay systems capable of quantitating mutagenicityExpand
Plant antimutagenic agents, 2. Flavonoids.
A number of known prenylated flavonoids were isolated from Psoralea corylifolia using an assay procedure based on inhibition of the mutagenic action of 2-aminoanthracene on Salmonella typhimuriumExpand
Bioassay-directed fractionation and chemical identification of mutagens in bioremediated soils.
Soil from a Superfund site (Reilly Tar Site, St. Louis Park, Minnesota) contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) from creosote was treated with several bioremediation technologiesExpand
Plant antimutagenic agents, 3. Coumarins.
Several coumarins were isolated from crude plant extracts by means of an antimutagenic assay procedure. These coumarins included psoralen from Psoralea corylifolia and imperatorin and osthol fromExpand
