Genotoxicity studies of di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate and its metabolites in CHO cells.

Abstract

The widely used plasticizer di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP), its hydrolysis products mono(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (MEHP) and 2-ethylhexanol, and also phthalic acid have been tested for clastogenic activity in cultured Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells. Only MEHP was found to cause chromosome damage. MEHP was without effect in the SCE and HGPRT mutation test… (More)
