The mutagenicity of the gas component of the atmosphere as an index of its quality

Dugan A.M.

 




Using an Ames proximate method with a metabolic activation, the authors could investigate the capacity of chemical substances complex extracted from the samples of the atmospheric air gas components of some industrial Ukrainian cities to induce genes’ mutation at TA 98 and TA 100. It was shown that air samples extracted in the cities with predominantly developed metallurgical industry had induced the mutagenic effect of "medium" power; the atmospheric air of the cities with predominantly developed chemical industry had induced both "medium" and "weak" mutagenic effects; the atmospheric air of relatively "clean" cities either had not induced mutagenic effects or had induced "weak" effects. State of the system of metabolic activation was mainly uneffective.
