The metabolism of beta-lyase and the mutagenicity of the synthetic cysteine conjugates S-1,2-dichlorovinylcysteine (DCVC), S-1,2,2-trichlorovinylcysteine (TCVC), S-1,2,3,4,4-pentachlorobuta-1,3-dienylcysteine (PCBC) and S-3-chloropropenylcysteine (CPC) were investigated in Salmonella typhimurium strains TA100, TA2638 and TA98. The bacteria contained significantly higher concentrations of beta-lyase than mammalian subcellular fractions. Bacterial 100,000 X g supernatants cleaved… CONTINUE READING
