Abstract

4,4″-Dinitroterphenyl was weakly mutagenic to strain TA98 of S. typhimurium when assayed in the absence of S9 mix. The level of activity observed was not sufficient to explain the S9-independent activity of DAT as a mutagen in terms of the presence of the dinitro compound as a minor contaminant.
