The initiator tRNA acceptance assay as a short-term test for carcinogens. 6. Results with 78 polycyclic aromatic compounds.


A total of 78 polycyclic aromatic compounds (PAH), including pure hydrocarbons, PAH metabolites, aromatic amines and nitroarenes, were tested in the initiator tRNA acceptance assay (tR assay) for carcinogens. Among the pure hydrocarbons, all strong carcinogens were highly active in the tR assay. Some weak carcinogens showed moderate positive responses… (More)
