Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
- Vehicle(s)/solvent(s) used: corn oil
-no other data
Details on exposure:
Groups of 4-6 mice were injected IP on three consecutive days with either the test chemical (at 1x, 1/2X, and 1/4x, where x is the maximum dose determined in the dose determination experiments), a weakly active dose of the positive control chemical (DMBA in corn oil or MMC in PBS), or the appropriate solvent. Mice were euthanized with CO2 24 hr after the third treatment.
Duration of treatment / exposure:
3 days
Frequency of treatment:
Post exposure period:
24 hr

Doses / Concentrations:
0, 62.5, 125, 250 and 500 mg/kg

No. of animals per sex per dose:

Control animals:
yes, concurrent vehicle
Positive control(s):
7,12-dimethylbenzanthracene or mitomycin C;
no other data


Tissues and cell types examined:
Bone marrow cells
Details of tissue and slide preparation:
DETAILS OF SLIDE PREPARATION: Bone marrow smears (two slides mouse) were prepared, fixed inabsolute methanol, and stained with acridine orange.

METHOD OF ANALYSIS: For each animal, slides were evaluated at 1,000x magnification for the number of MN-PCE among 2,000 PCE and for the percentage of PCE among 200 erythrocytes.

Evaluation criteria:
MN-PCE/2000 PCE and % of PCE among 200 erythrocytes
The data were analyzed using the Micronucleus Assay Data Management and Statistical software package (version 1.4), which was designed specifically for in vivo micronucleus data [ILS, 1990]. The %PCE data were analyzed by an analysis of variance (ANOVA) test based on pooled data.
Pairwise comparisons between each group and the concurrent solvent control group was by an unadjusted one-tailed Pearson chisquared test which incorporated the calculated variance inflation factor for the study.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results (migrated information): negative
Under the conditions of this test, 11-aminoundecanoic acid did not induce a genotoxic effect.
Executive summary:

In a mouse bone marrow micronucleus test (Shelby et al., 1993), male B6C3F1 mice were treated with 11-aminoundecanoic acid, mixed in corn oil, in an i.p. administration at the dose levels of 62.5, 125, 250 and 500 mg/kg (0.4 ml per mouse). The protocol involved three daily treatments and a single sample time 24 hr following the final treatment was performed. Four to six mice were used for each dose level along with a negative control. Mice were injected with 7,12-dimethylbenzanthracene or mitomycin C and served as positive control. The positive controls induced the appropriate response. Results with the test substance did not induced cytogenetic damage to the bone marrow cells in mice. This study is classified as acceptable and satisfies the requirement for Test Guideline OECD 474.
