Mutagenicity of bithionol sulfoxide and its metabolites in the salmonella/mammalian microsome test.


PMID 3553922

Abstract

The mutagenic effects of bithionol sulfoxide and its two major metabolites, bithionol and bithionol sulfone, on 4 Salmonella typhimurium strains (TA97, TA98, TA100 and TA102) were investigated. Bithionol sulfoxide was found to be mutagenic to TA98 and TA100. However, mutagenicity was abolished in the presence of rat-liver S9 fractions.
