Method

Target gene:
his-operon
Species / strain
Species / strain / cell type:
S. typhimurium TA 1535, TA 1537, TA 98, TA 100 and TA 102
Additional strain / cell type characteristics:
other: All strains are deep rough and have a reduced capability to repair DNA-damage (except for TA 102). Strains TA 98, TA 100 and TA 102 contain the R-factor plasmid pkM101 enhancing an error prone DNA repair system.
Metabolic activation:
with and without
Metabolic activation system:
S9 mix prepared from the livers of rats treated with phenobarbital/beta-naphthoflavone was achieved from Trinova Biochem GmbH and was cofactor supplemented.

Details on test system and experimental conditions:
A preliminary plate incorporation experiment with the tester strains TA 98 and TA 100 was performed. The results were were in accordance with the acceptance criteria and are therfore reported as part of Experiment I.

METHOD OF APPLICATION:
Experiment I: in agar (plate incorporation);
Experiment II: preincubation

The initial plate incorporation test was conducted as follows:
Briefly, 0.1 mL test substance, 0.1 mL bacteria culture, 0.5 mL S9 mix (or buffer) and 2.0 mL soft agar were mixed and plated onto petri dishes with solid agar. After incubation at 37 °C for 48 h colonies were counted using an automatic counter. Each experiment was performed in triplicate.
The independent repeat was performed as preincubation test. Briefly, 0.1 mL test substance, 0.1 mL bacteria culture and 0.5 mL S9 mix (or buffer) were preincubated at 37 °C for 60 min. At the end of the preincubation period 2 mL of molten soft agar was added. After mixing, the suspension was plated, incubated for 48 h at 37 °C and colonies were counted using an automatic counter. Each experiment was performed in triplicate.

DETERMINATION OF CYTOTOXICITY
The reduction of background growth of bacteria on the plates as well as a reduction in the mutant count per plate to approximately 0.5 in comparison to control were used as marker for cytotoxicity.
Evaluation criteria:
The following criteria determined the acceptance of an assay:
1. The negative controls had to be within the expected range, as defined by the laboratories’ own historical data.
2. The positive controls had to show sufficient effects, as defined by the laboratories' experience
3. The bacteria strains TA 98, TA 100 and TA 102 demonstrate their typical response to ampicillin.
4. Corresponding background growth on negative control, solvent control and test plates is oberved
A clear and dose-related increase in mutant counts of at least one strain is considered to be a positive result. For TA 98, TA 100, and TA 102 this increase should be about twice that of negative controls. For TA 1535 and TA 1537 the increase should be about three times than that of solvent controls. Otherwise, the result is evaluated as negative. However, these criteria may be overruled by good scientific judgment.
Statistics:
Mean values and standard deviation were calculated.
