Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Interpretation of results (migrated information):
positive with metabolic activation TA 1515, TA 98 and TA 100

Morin is mutagenic in the Ames test for Strain TA 1515, TA 98 and TA 100 with metabolic activation (S9).
Executive summary:

As many other flavonols Morin is mutagenic in the Ames Test. In comparison to other flavonols like quercetin (CAS: 117-39-5) the mutagenic effect is less pronounced. Only after metabolic activation with S9 morin shows mutagenicity for the Salmonella typhimurium strains: TA 1515, TA 98 and TA 100.
