Description of key information

Gene mutation in vitro:

Ames test:

Data available for the structurally and functonally similar read across chemicals was reviewed to determine the mutagenic nature of the test chemical tetrasodium 2-[[4-[[4-[(4-amino-6-chloro-1,3,5-triazin-2-yl)amino]-5-sulphonato-1-naphthyl]azo]-7-sulphonato-1-naphthyl]azo]benzene-1,4-disulphonate. The studies are as mentioned below:

Gene mutation toxicity study was performed to determine the mutagenic nature of the 60 -70% structurally and functionally similar test chemical. Spot test was performed at dose levels from 10-250 mg using Salmonella typhimurium strain TA98, TA1537, TA100, TA1535 with and without S9 metabolic activation system. Captan was used as positive control chemical and the solvent control used was DMSO. Mutagenicity was indicated by a clustering of revertant colonies directly around the test material or at the edge of the inhibitory zone. The test chemical did not induce clustering of revertant colonies directly around the test material or at the edge of the inhibitory zone using Salmonella typhimurium strain TA98, TA1537, TA100, TA1535 in the presence and absence of S9 metabolic activation system and hence is not likely to classify as a gene mutant in vitro.

Gene mutation toxicity study was performed to determine the mutagenic nature of the 60 -70% structurally and functionally similar test chemical. The study was performed as per the plate incorporation assay using Salmonella typhimurium strain TA98, TA1537, TA100, TA1535 with and without S9 metabolic activation system. The 2 ml of liquid top agar was cooled to 45°C and 0.1 ml of a broth cultureof microorganism and test substance in volumes of≤0.4 ml of DMSO was added prior to placing on minimal agar plates. The plates were incubated for 48 h at 37°C and the colonies which reverted to the prototroph were counted and compared to counts on the control plate (containing no test substance) to demonstrate mutagenicity or toxicity. Materials which caused a 2-fold increase of revertants, as compared to the number of spontaneous revertants on the control plates, were denoted as mutagens. Those which reduced the number of revertants were considered inhibitory. The test chemical did not result in a 2-fold increase in the number of revertants as compared to the number of spontaneous revertants on the control plates in Salmonella typhimurium strain TA98, TA1537, TA100, TA1535 in the presence and absence of S9 metabolic activation system and hence is not likely to classify as a gene mutant in vitro.

Gene mutation toxicity study was also performed for another 60 -70% structurally and functoinally similar test chemical to evaluate its mutagenic nature. The study was performed as per the preincubation protocol using Salmonella typhimurium strain TA100, TA1535, TA1537, TA98 both in the presence and absence of S9 metabolic activation system at doses of 0, 100.0, 333.0, 1000.0, 3333.0 or 10000.0 µg/plate. Water was used as the vehicle. The plates were incubated for 48 hrs after 20 mins preincubation before the evaluation of the revertant colonies could be made. The test chemical did not induce mutation in the Salmonella typhimurium strain TA100, TA1535, TA1537, TA98 both in the presence and absence of S9 metabolic activation system and hence the chemical is not likely to classify as a gene mutant in vitro.

Based on the data available for the read across chemicals, the target chemical tetrasodium 2-[[4-[[4-[(4-amino-6-chloro-1,3,5-triazin-2-yl)amino]-5-sulphonato-1-naphthyl]azo]-7-sulphonato-1-naphthyl]azo]benzene-1,4-disulphonate is considered to not induce gene mutation is Salmonella typhimurium strains in the presence and absence of S9 metabolic activation system on the basis of the data available from the structurally and functionally similar read across chemical and hence is not likely to classify as a gene mutant in vitro.
