Evaluation of genotoxicity of 3-amino-, 3-acetylamino- and 3-nitrobenzanthrone using the Ames/Salmonella assay and the Comet assay



Evaluation of genotoxicity of 3-amino-, 3-acetylamino- and 3-nitrobenzanthrone using the Ames/Salmonella assay and the Comet assay



Journal of Health Science 51(5): 569-575



3-Nitrobenzanthrone (3-NBA) is an extremely potent direct-acting bacterial mutagen that has been detected in diesel exhaust particles, airborne particles and so forth. Recently, 3-aminobenzanthrone (3-ABA) and 3-acetylaminobenzanthrone (3-AABA) were identified as metabolites of 3-NBA in mammalian cells.
