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 an identical mouse pressure as utilized in the 'in vivo' cytogenetics assays), and uninduced bird. the main bulk of the assays defined within the learn concerned using huge universal batches of those fifty nine arrangements. The learn used to be backed by way of the uk Environmental Mutagen Society (UKEMS) and may stand as a tremendous landmark in genetic toxicology.
