Abstract : The mutagenic potential of SEX and TAX was assessed by using the Ames Salmonella/Mammalian Microsome Mutagenicity Assay. Tester strains TA 98, TA 100, TA 1535, TA 1537, and TA 1538 were exposed to doses ranging from 1 mg/plate to 10-5 mg/plate. Negative mutagenic responses were observed for both test compounds.
