Comparative Genetic Toxicology: The Second UKEMS by J.M. Parry, C.F. Arlett

By J.M. Parry, C.F. Arlett

This selection of sixty nine papers investigates 'in vitro' metabolic activation arrangements for 2 particular pairs of chemical analogues, benzidine (BZD) with 4,4-diaminoterphenyl (DAT) and 4-dimethyl-aminoazobenzene (DAB) with 4-cyanodimethylaniline (CDA). The arrangements chosen have been uninduced rat liver (using rats of a similar pressure because the bioassay). Aroclor-induced rat liver, uninduced mouse liver (using a similar mouse pressure as utilized in the 'in vivo' cytogenetics assays), and uninduced chook. the foremost bulk of the assays defined within the learn concerned using huge universal batches of those fifty nine arrangements. The research used to be subsidized through the uk Environmental Mutagen Society (UKEMS) and may stand as a major landmark in genetic toxicology.

Chemicals Both BZD and DAT were supplied by UKEMS and were formulated as solutions in dimethylsulphoxide (DMSO) on the day of use. Bacterial mutation assay The method used was that described by Ames et al. (1975) incorporating 4%, 10% or 30% Aroclor-induced rat liver or non-induced All tests were carried out using chicken liver S9 in the S9 mix. three plates per data point.
