The mutagenicity of 3-tert-butyl-4-hydroxyanisole (BHA) and its metabolites was investigated in the reverse mutation assay using S. typhimurium strains and the chromosomal aberration test in vitro using a Chinese hamster fibroblast cell line, CHL. BHA, tert-butylhydroquinone (BHQ), tert-butylquinone (BQ) and BHA dimer (diBHA) did not show any mutagenic… CONTINUE READING
