Investigation into the ability of the Salmonella umu test to detect DNA damage using antitumor drugs.

Abstract

In order to examine the ability of the umu test detecting system, 18 antitumor drugs were tested using the Salmonella umu test. The tested antitumor drugs were selected so as to produce different biochemical actions, and they were classified into three categories; five agents of group I (antimetabolites), eight agents of group II (alkylating agents), and… (More)
