In vitro transformation of hamster embryo cells by 3-(N-salicyloyl)amino-1,2,4-triazole.


PMID 7222095

Abstract

The in vitro carcinogenic activities of 3-(N-salicyloyl)amino-1,2,4-triazole (SAT) and its two components, 3-amino-1,2,4-triazole and phenyl salicylate were examined in a transformation assay with cryopreserved hamster embryo cells. SAT induced morphological transformation at certain doses between 10 microgram/ml and 100 microgram/ml in each of 5 repeated experiments, but gave a negative result in the Salmonella mutation assay. 3-Amino-1,2,4-triazole also induced transformation in 3 repeated experiments. Phenyl salicylate did not induce transformation at any of the doses tested in 3 consecutive experiments.
