Response of the L-arabinose forward mutation assay of Salmonella typhimurium to frameshift-type mutagens.

Abstract

The present study was designed to evaluate the capacity of the L-arabinose resistance test of Salmonella typhimurium in the detection of frameshift-type mutagens. To this end the response of the Ara test was examined with respect to 15 chemicals which had been previously described as able to revert the Ames tester strain TA97. The mutagenicity of each… (More)
