Mutagenicity inhibition of MNNG*, NFAA* as well as of nitrovin by ascorbic acid was observed. The influence of ascorbic acid on these compounds was parallelly studied also by spectroscopy. Mutagenicity inhibition was characterized by SOS chromotest. Inhibition degree was evaluated quantitatively introducing the coefficient of inhibition. The influence of… CONTINUE READING
