Both sexes of BALB/c X DBA/2 F1 mice and F344 rats were treated for 1 week with a diet containing 0.02% of hepatocarcinogenic tryptophan pyrolysate component (Trp P-1 or Trp P-2), and changes in the carcinogen activation enzyme activity in various organs were examined comparatively using a mutation test with Salmonella typhimurium TA98 as a tester bacterium. Hepatic enzymes from untreated mice and rats showed a definite catalytic activity for mutagenic activations of Trp P-1 and Trp P-2… CONTINUE READING
