Bacterial mutagenicity, metabolism, and DNA adduct formation by binary mixtures of benzo[a]pyrene and 1-nitropyrene.


Air pollutants are a complex mixture containing polycyclic organic compounds. Among these are 1-NP and B[a]P, which are important contributors to the mutagenicity of diesel exhaust and airborne particulate matters. To investigate the interaction of a complex mixture of airborne mutagens, the mutagenicity of 1-NP was examined with S. typhimurium TA98 and… (More)
