Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Phthalocyanine blue failed to induce mutation in the Salmonella typhimurium TA98, TA1538 and TA1535 in the presence and absence of S9 metabolic activation system and hence is negative for gene mutation in vitro.
Executive summary:

Gene mutation study was conducted to evaluate the mutagenic nature of Phthalocyanine blue (IUPAC name: 29H,31H-phthalocyaninato(2-)-N29,N30,N31,N32 copper). The study was performed using the preincubation protocol using Salmonella typhimurium TA98, TA1538 and TA1535 both in the presence and absence of S9 metabolic activation system.10 µg of the dye partially or completely dissolved in 0.01 ml of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) was added to 0.9 ml of the reagents in the liquid phase and incubated 30 min at 37°C with shaking before plating 0.1 ml onto minimal plates. Consurrent solvent and positive controls were included in the study. Phthalocyanine blue failed to induce mutation in Salmonella typhimurium TA98, TA1538 and TA1535 in the presence and absence of S9 metabolic activation system and hence is negative for gene mutation in vitro.
