The aim of this study is to report the antimutagenic effect of vitamin A and vitamin E towards methylazoxymethanol (MAM)-induced mutagenesis in Salmonella typhimurium strain TA100 sensitive to alkylating agents. In order to characterize different levels of action of these two fat-soluble vitamins towards the mutagenicity of MAM, several assays have been considered to show the antimutagenic effect and the possible interactions of vitamins with MAM or with the bacteria. Thus, for each vitamin… CONTINUE READING
