The following table presents the revertants/plate mean for the three experiments for each strain.
The substance was assessed for its potential to induce gene mutations according to the plate incorporation test using Salmonella typhimurium strains TA1535, TA1537, TA1538, TA98 and TA100. The assay was performed in two independent experiments, using identical procedures, both with and without rat liver microsomal activation. According to the results of these experiments, a third experiment (III) was performed only with TA1535 and TA1537 with and without metabolic activation. Five concentrations (10.0, 100.0, 333.3, 1000.0 and 5000.0 μg/plate) including the control were inoculated with each of the strains for 72 hours at 37 °C. Each concentration was tested in triplicate.
Toxic effects occurred in strain TA1535 at 100.0 μg/plate (exp. I) and in strain TA1537 at 1000.0 μg/plate (exp. Ill) both without S9 mix. Also in strain TA 98 at 5000.0 μg/plate with metabolic activation in both experiments. The plates incubated with the test article showed normal background growth up to 5000.0 ug/plate with and without S9 mix in all strains used. In strain TA1537 (with S9 mix) a dose-dependent increase in the number of revertants was observed in the concentration range of 333.3 up to 5000.0 ug/plate. This increase was less significant in exp. II. In the experiment III no relevant increase in the number of revertants was observed. Based on these results a mutagenic potential of the test article in strain TA1537 cannot be excluded, but this the effect was not reproduced in all three experiments. In strain TA1538 (with S9 mix) a dose-dependent increase was obtained up to 333.3 μg/plate (exp. I) and up to 1000.0 μg/plate (exp. ΙI). No indication of mutagenic response occured in strains TA1535, TA 98, and TA 100 as compared to the solvent control nor a concentration-dependent enhancement of the revertant number exists, with and without metabolic activation. The substance induced point mutations by frameshifts in the genome of the strain TA1538 and there is an indication of a possible mutagenic response in strain TA1537.
Under the tested conditions, the test article induced point mutations by frameshifts in the genome of strain TA1538. There was also an indication of a possible mutagenic response in strain TA1537.
