Identification of mutagens, co-mutagens and antimutagens in Indian foods. II. Some vegetables


, : Identification of mutagens, co-mutagens and antimutagens in Indian foods. II. Some vegetables. Indian Journal of Nutrition and Dietetics 29(4): 120-125

The following components of the Indian diet were screened for mutagenic, co-mutagenic and antimutagenic effects: radish, onion, carrot, beetroot and tomato. Mutagenicity was assessed using the Ames test, using Salmonella typhimurium TA 98 and TA 100 in the presence and absence of a metabolic activation mixture, S9. TA 98 was used to identify the frame-shift mutation and TA 100 was used to identify the base-pair substituting mutation.
