Test material

Reference
Name:
Unnamed
Type:
Constituent
Details on test material:
C10-13-sec alkyl derivative, Benzosulfonic acid (CAS #85536-14-7); purity 97.3%

Test animals

Species:
mouse
Strain:
NMRI
Sex:
male/female
Details on test animals and environmental conditions:
Strain NMRI. Animals were approximately 22-26 g (male) and 20-25 g (female) and acclimated for 1 week to the test conditions (20 =/- 3 degrees C, 30-70% relative humidity, 12 hour light/dark cycle). Food was given daily and water was ad libitum. All animals were healthy at the time of test initiation.

Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
oral: gavage
Vehicle:
NaCl
Duration of treatment / exposure:
72 hours
Frequency of treatment:
single dose
Doses / concentrations
Remarks:
Doses / Concentrations:
1122 mg/kg
Basis:
actual ingested
No. of animals per sex per dose:
40 males and 40 females per dose
Control animals:
yes
Positive control(s):
Endoxan (cyclophosphamid)

Examinations

Tissues and cell types examined:
Cells were taken from the thigh.
Details of tissue and slide preparation:
Cells were mixed with cattle serum and suspended, then centrifuged. The sediment was then resuspended. The suspension was seperated in a cellulose chromatography column. This was centrifuged, and mixed with fetal calf serum and EDTA. This was air-dried for 24 hrs and stained with Giemsa.
Evaluation criteria:
number of polychromatid erythrocytes (PCE)
ratio of PCE to normochromatid erythrocytes (NCE)
number of cells with micronucleus
