Terminology: Mutagenicity Test with Mammal Cells
The objective of this test is to examine if the mutagenicity that the test substance induces exists in mammal cells.
Mouse lymphoma cells L5178Y were used as test cells to assess whether thymidine kinase genes (TK+/-) changed into thymidine kinase absent genes (TK-/-) by observing genetic changes and quantitative evaluation.
[Test Method for Zeomic]
As a result it was determined that Zeomic had no mutagenicity (negative) as long as it manifested no cytotoxicity.
