Mutagenicity of O-diazoacetyl-L-serine (azaserine) and 6-diazo-5-oxo-L- norleucine (DON) in a soybean test system.

Abstract

The mutagenicity of O-diazoacetyl-L-serine (azaserine) and 6-diazo-5-oxo-L-norleucine (DON), glutamine analogues, were assayed in heterozygous soybean plants (Y11y11), according to the appearance of mutational spots (yellow, dark green and twin) on the leaves. The mutagenicity of azaserine was detected at 0.1 mg/ml, and that of DON, at 0.05 mg/ml. DON was… (More)
