From a literature survey, 86 chemicals are tabulated that have been evaluated in 121 assays for their clastogenic effects in Zea mays. Eighty-one of the 86 chemicals are reported as giving a positive reaction (i.e. causing chromosome aberrations). Of these, 36 are reported positive with a dose response. In addition, 32 assays have been recorded for 7 types of radiation, all of which reacted positively. The results of 126 assays with 63 chemicals and 12 types of radiation tested for the… CONTINUE READING
