Details on test system and experimental conditions:
METHOD OF APPLICATION: in agar (plate incorporation)

- Preincubation period: 12 hours
- Exposure duration: 48 to 72 hours
- Expression time (cells in growth medium): 60 to 84 hours
- Selection time (if incubation with a selection agent): 60 to 84 hours
- Fixation time (start of exposure up to fixation or harvest of cells): 48 to 72 hours

SELECTION AGENT (mutation assays): Histidine or tryptophan minimal agar.

NUMBER OF CELLS EVALUATED: All colonies on all plates were counted by a Sorcerer Colony Counter or by hand where appropriate.

- Method: Background lawn condition
Evaluation criteria:
For the test article to be evaluated positive, it must cause a dose-related increase in the mean revertants per plate of at least one tester strain over a minimum of two increasing concentrations of test article as specified below:
TA1535 and TA1537: positive if the increase in mean revertants at the peak of the dose response was equal or greater than 3.0 times the mean vehicle control value.
TA98, TA100 and WP2 uvrA: Positive if the increase in mean revertants at the peak of the dose response was equal to or greater than 2.0-times the mean vehicle control value. An equivocal response is a biologically relevant increase in a revertant count that partially meets the criteria for evaluation as positive. This could be a dose-responsive increase that does not achieve the respective threshold cited above or a non-dose responsive increase that is equal to or greater than the respective threshold cited. A response was evaluated as negative if it was neither positive nor equivocal.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results (migrated information):

Based on the results of the test, MTDID 9115 was not mutagenic in the Bacterial Reverse Mutation Assay in the presence or absence of metabolic activation.
Executive summary:

The mutagenic potential of the test article was evaluated in the Bacterial Reverse Mutation Assay with S. typhimurium strains TA98, TA100, TA1535, and TA1537 and E. coli strain WP2 uvrA in the presence and absence of a metabolic activation system (Aroclor induced - S9 mix). The study was performed in compliance with FDA GLP 21 CFR 58 and OECD GLP C(97)186/Final. The test method was based on OECD No. 471 (1997). The test article was diluted in DMSO and dosed at 15, 50, 150, 500, 1500 and 5000 ug/plate. Strain specific controls and vehicle controls were also prepared. Separate experiments were performed in the presence and absence of metabolic activation. Precipitation was noted at 500 or 1500 mg/plate. No toxicity was observed. No mutagenic responses were observed in any strain in the presence or absence of metabolic activation. Based on the results of the test, the test article was not mutagenic in the Bacterial Reverse Mutation Assay in the presence or absence of metabolic activation.
