Induction of SOS functions in Escherichia coli and biosynthesis of nitrosamine in rabbits by nitrogen dioxide.

Abstract

Nitrogen dioxide induced SOS functions in Salmonella typhimurium and Escherichia coli K-12 and was mutagenic in Escherichia coli WP2. When a rabbit was administered aminopyrine intravenously and administered nitrogen dioxide by inhalation, N-nitrosodimethylamine was detected in its blood. Analysis was conducted with 15N-nitrosodimethylamine as an internal… (More)
