Abstract:

The mutagenic potential of SEX and TAX was assessed by using the Ames SalmonellaMammalian Microsome Mutagenicity Assay. Tester strains TA 98, TA 100, TA 1535, TA 1537, and TA 1538 were exposed to doses ranging from 1 mgplate to 10-5 mgplate. Negative mutagenic responses were observed for both test compounds.
