Method

Target gene:
Reversion from his- to his+

Species / strain
Species / strain / cell type:
other: TA-1535, TA-1537, TA-1538, TA-98, TA-100 & E. coli WP2 uvrA
Metabolic activation:
with and without
Metabolic activation system:
S9 mix from livers of Aroclor 1254 induced male rats
Test concentrations with justification for top dose:
62, 185, 556, 1667 and 5000 µg/plate (with and without S9)
Vehicle / solvent:
- Vehicle(s)/solvent(s) used: water
- Justification for choice of solvent/vehicle: the test substance was soluble in water up to the highest test concentration
Controls
Untreated negative controls:
no
Negative solvent / vehicle controls:
yes
True negative controls:
no
Positive controls:
yes
Positive control substance:
other: without S9: sodium azide (TA-1535, TA-100), 2-nitrofluorene (TA-98), 9-aminoacridine (TA-1537), N-ethyl-N-nitrosourea (WP2 uvrA); with S9: 2-aminoanthracene (all strains except TA 1537), benzo(a)pyrene (TA1537)
Details on test system and experimental conditions:
METHOD OF APPLICATION: in agar (plate incorporation)
DURATION
- Exposure duration: 72 hours
NUMBER OF REPLICATIONS: 3 plates per strain per concentration (with S9 and without S9)
DETERMINATION OF CYTOTOXICITY
- Method: reduction in number of revertant colonies and/or clearing of background lawn of bacterial growth
Evaluation criteria:
The assay was considered valid if the mean colony counts of the control are within acceptable ranges and if the results of the positive control meet the criteria for a positive response.
A response was considered positive if the mean number of revertant colonies on the test plates is increased two-fold or more compared to that on the negative control plates.
A test substance was considered to be mutagenic if a concentration related increase or if a reproducible positive response is observed.
Statistics:
None.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Interpretation of results (migrated information):
negative

In an Ames test (plate incorporation assay) according to OECD 471, the test substance was negative in all 5 tester strains in the presence and absence of metabolic activation (S9 mix from livers of Aroclor 1254 induced rats). The negative result was not confirmed in an independent repeat test.
