Mechanism of comutagenesis of sodium arsenite withn-methyl-n-nitrosourea


Arsenic compounds are known carcinogens. Although many carcinogens are also mutagens, we have previously shown that sodium arsenite is not mutagenic at either the Na+/K+ ATPase orhprt locus in Chinese hamster V79 cells. It can, however, enhance UV-mutagenesis. We now confirm the nonmutagenicity of sodium arsenite in line G12, a pSV2gpt-transformed V79 (hprt… (More)
